Problems after Kernel upgrade/recompile.

Hi all,

I've noticed an odd annoyance recently on a mandrake 6.1 system I've been messing with.

The core kernel is 2.9 with patches up to 2.13pre. I decided to skip all that and downloaded a complete 2.14 kernel source. After config, compile, and editing lilo, I noticed the message "Kernel version incorrect in system.map" when booting the new kernel. Other than that I haven't noticed any other problems with the new kernel, everything seems to be running fine.

Anybody ran into this before?

You just need to move /usr/src/linux/System.map to /boot directory. If you have other existing System.map to preserve in /boot, then, simply make
a /boot/System.map a symLink pointing to /usr/src/linux/System.map whereever you moved it to.
If you compiled kernel somewhere else, you should be able to find the System.map side by side with vmlinux you made.
