The packages in Adamantix stable are compiled against 1.2.2-final, which is
included in the 2.4.21 kernel-image packages.

As far as the rsbac-secpolicy package is concerned, it is not available at the
moment. It is more or less broken and needs to be cleaned up a lot and extended
to cover all packages that are in Adamantix stable. I don't have much time for
that though, since I'm also busy with five other Adamantix things. :-(

I'll upload the package later today (watch announce-l). Feel free to unbreak it
and send in patches if you want.

BTW, you can boot a non-RSBAC kernel (e.g. from a Debian rescue CD-ROM) and
remove the rsbac.dat directories on each mount-point to get rid of the garbage
setup you have now.
