No, by default you have a single-node cluster fully capable of TIPC
networking. But you do need the TIPC module loaded; have you tried
modprobe tipc?

If that works, the test cases should pass.

I understand that this might be a problem because there is no time to
check at runtime if you have TIPC enabled in your kernel (besides the
obvious way of trying to create the socket and see if it fails); but you
have the same problem with any network protocol (although obviously is
much more common to have TIPC disabled than the rest of the supported

Do you want me to check for this in the conditional for inclusion?
