Having issues with modules in 2.2.x
Posted on 2000-04-10
Hi there...I've been running Linux since the 1.2.x days, so I consider myself to be fairly proficient in it. However, ever since upgrading from 2.0.x to
2.2.6, I've been having a strange problem with modules. I'm sure
it's something stupid I'm doing, as it's clearly not a problem for others.
Every module that I build gives an error when I try to use it with insmod.
I'm using insmod and modprobe versions 2.1.121. My compiler is:
gcc version egcs-2.91.60 19981201 (egcs-1.1.1 release)
It doesn't matter if I download a specific .c file and do a module compile on the spot, or do a full 'make modules' -- I get the same error message.
What I get is a list of 'unresolved symbol' error messages for what
appears to be every single symbol. For fat.o the symbol list includes:
...And there's a similar list for any other driver I try to load.
If there's someone else who has seen this, I'd appreciate hearing about it.
I'm spending all my points on this, as it's been bugging me for over a year
and I've never found a solution.
