mandrake 6.0: "/boot/System.map has an incorrect kernel version"

Post by Ross Willma » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00



I installed Mandrake 6.0 a few months ago, and of course the first thing i
did was re-compile the kernel... All was fine. Then a few days ago i
downloaded 2.2.13 and compiled it, but i ran into a problem. The system
boots fine, but i get an error message when some of the daemons start:

Warning: /boot/System.map has an incorrect kernel version

So I had a look at /boot/System.map and noticed it's a link to a
/boot/System.map-2.2.5-mdk or something like that.
I get this message about 5 or so times, for a number of different daemons.
(at, X font server,... i can't rememer the rest)
If i ignore the message everything seems to work fine, but i know that's not
supposed to happen!

I had a look throught the kernel documentation and kernel howto and couldn't
find any help...
So what is system.map file? how do i "fix it"?

Thanks in advance,
Ross

oh, and to compile the kernel i did the following (not that i think it makes
any difference):

make mrproper
make menuconfig
make zImage
make dep
make clean
make modules
make modules_install

Do a 'ln -sf /usr/src/linux/System.map /boot/System.map', and while
you're at it, do 'ln -sf /usr/src/linux/.config /boot/config'.

HTH,

1. RedHat 5.2, "/boot/System.map" and "/boot/System.map"

Hello,

Would someone know how to configure  modules with the
"/boot/System.map"  and  "/boot/System.map" files in RedHat 5.2?
I can't seem to find any references on the RedHat site to these files.
In 5.1 all you had to do was rename your kernel with a name like
"vmlinuz-2.0.35.x" and an accompanying modules directory called
"/lib/modules/2.0.35.x" and the modules were loaded properly.  It took
me awhile to figure that one out...and RedHat goes and changes the rules
again ;-\

Thanks, Luc.
