    Possibly, although I guess 2.6.31 has the same change that caused:
    
    http://www.nersc.gov/hypermail/checkpoint/1249.html
    http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=542643
    
    The current package in debian includes a patch for this, which you
    might have more luck with although there might be other problems
    still... I'd be interested to hear if you managed to build the debian
    packages on ubuntu without any changes.
