********** Loading the iBCS module... Error: The module was compiled
on kernel version 1.2.13. This kernel is version 2.0.21. They don't
match! Check that the module is usable with the current kernel,
recompile the module and try again.
Try re-compiling the module once you have your new kernel installed. The
interface could have changed, and it could be that it does some version
checks. This usually happens when you grade from one level to another.
Trying to load anyway... kfree_s undefined create_tables undefined
interface problems? If you have to know the*details, then subscribe to
the kernel-hackers list. It's very busy, be warned.
Failed to load module! The symbols from kernel 1.2.13 don't match
No surprise here.
Another thing I noticed was that pppd no longer works with the new
kernel. It gives me an error message something like 'ppp not
There are a few changes, but definitively for the better. This is mainly in
the scheduler (that's why you need to get a higher procps package, and
improved networking [finally!]). Compile ppp as a module, run kerneld (whacky
kind of thing) and, above all, read /usr/src/linux/Documentation/Changes.
Before I forget... No, you don't have to wipe your disk and install everything
from scratch. Everything && more than you need to know is in the file
mentioned above. Wiping your disk for a kernel upgrade is *. You will
regret the day if something goes wrong (which is usually the case, even when
you backup, something is always misteriously missing...and if you use tar,
then you have to pray hard that you copies remain intact).
Thus, upgrade your stuff manually. Only upgrade when you know that you need
the features of the new package. Versionitis does not pay off. I've been
doing so for 4years now and have rarely experienced unsolicited trouble. But
then again, if you have no data or work to loose, you might just as well zap
The choice is yours.
Does this help a little?
