2.4.3-pre6 build problems

2.4.3-pre6 build problems

Post by Jack Howart » Fri, 23 Mar 2001 09:30:03

   Is anyone else seeing this build problem on linux
2.4.3-pre6? On linuxppc using out bitkeeper linuxppc_2_4
archive which has been updated to linux 2.4.3-pre6 I see
the following failure...

Does anyone have a patch for drivers/net/pcnet32.c to fix this?

1. 2.4.21-pre6 modules can't access kernel symbols - build system problem?


I encounter a problem which baffles me, having built same release before

1) Checked 21-pre6 out from local BK tree

2) Patched with latest acpi and win4lin

3) make oldconfig

4) Made some config changes

5) make dep, bzImage, modules - use gcc295

6) Compiled w/o any problem

7) installed and reboot, cant load _any_ (0) modules

depmod reports missing symbols in all modules

For example modprobe 8390 reports unresolved symbols including: enable_irq, kmalloc, printk,disable_irq

*** It seems kernel symbols cant be accessed by modules

8) I rebuild all after making clean, same result

Where do I go wrong?

I can send complete build logs upon request.
