Hi List,

I use FreeRADIUS 3.0.11 on Arch Linux (ARM). Since I've updated
FreeRADIUS from 3.0.10 to 3.0.11 I'm unable to start the FreeRADIUS server.

>   # Instantiating module "eap" from file /etc/raddb/mods-enabled/eap

> /etc/raddb/mods-enabled/eap[17]: Instantiation failed for module "eap"

Here is the full output of radiusd -X:

Here is the file /etc/raddb/mods-enabled/eap:

I haven't changed the configuration of the server for months.
Downgrading to older versions (e.g. 3.0.10) resolves the issue.

Is this a bug in the FreeRADIUS server or rather a misconfiguration that
was tolerated in older versions?

Thanks in advance for any hints.
