I have RedHat 9 using kernel 2.4.20-8 and I upgraded to kernel 2.6.7.

1. I upgraded to module-init-tools to version 2.3.0 (I understand that the message below says 2.4.22 but what I am worried about is that one kernel complains about QM_MODULES while the other does not)
2. I upgraded my kernel

The problem is that when I run 'depmod -V' under kernel 2.6.7 I get the following:
depmod version 2.4.22
depmod: QM_MODULES: Function not implemented

However when I run 'depmod -V ' under kernel 2.4.20-8 I get the following:
depmod version 2.4.22


I am trying to figure out why I get a bunch of "QM_MODULES: Function not implemented" messages when booting up my machine and ultimately want to be able to use all of my hardware (ethernet, sound).  I am pretty sure that I included the drivers for my hardware into my kernel.

For that matter, what is a good way to "migrate" a machine from one kernel to the next?  There may be a new set of services and applications that you may not want to mix with other kernels.  Any suggestions?

sounds like you need a depmod compiled with/for 2.6 series
