That should be /lib/modules/2.4.20-19.7/kernel/net/ipsec/ipsec.o
I have seen a bug where it sometimes gets installed in the wrong place,
and upon starting we dont find it, and then try to fallback on the native 2.6
code, the af_key error you see.


mkdir -p /lib/modules/2.4.20-19.7/kernel/net/ipsec/
mv /lib/modules/2.4.20-19.7/kernel/ipsec.o /lib/modules/2.4.20-19.7/kernel/net/ipsec/ipsec.o
depmod -a

And could you tell me if that fixes your problem,
