Ah, right. Are you using the binaries from contextgarden.net?

If yes, then the problem is most likely that your linux kernel is still
from the 2.4.x series. After the contextgarden upgrade, the binaries
that are distributed from there are for 2.6.x (it seems nobody has an
"old enough" linux install readily available any more).

Best wishes,
