This should not be a problem with the kolab package from OpenPKG 2.0.
I remember we debugged this issue down into the kernel sources to find
out O_DIRECT is fully broken in 2.2 and 2.4 kernels. We found out that
RedHat completely ignores this flag to make software work. According to
the HISTORY  OpenPKG was patched on 15-Sep-2003, see  and read the
comment around O_DIRECT there.
Anyway we'll check this as soon as SuSE 9.1 is availabe for download
which I'm checking for bidaily.
