Resources on pre-requirements for Personas 3

Check your kernel release and patch level

Personas 3 heavily depends on SAP Kernel patch level. It`s not like this is to give you more work, Personas simply depends on core functionality that is part of the kernel. When something is fixed there, you have to update your kernel.
