That's your problem, 2.6.32 is _very_ old and obsolete.  No one in the
community can help you out with that release anymore, sorry.

Please go get support from the company that is forcing you to stay at

I strongly recommend you use a more modern kernel release, you will find
that things should be _much_ better...

good luck!
