Re: Module problem with 2.6.0-test9
I know that's an option, but given the choice I'd rather not do that and
there has to be a bug somewhere causing this.
And what's even stranger is that I just noticed that when I boot up
tulip fails to load as a module but if I load jfs then try tulip again
it loads fine... Removing jfs causes it to fail with a relocation error
again, what could tulip and jfs have in common? And even better is if I
rmmod jfs tulip keeps working.

Thus spake Jim Crilly:
Currently running Sarge on a PWS600au and some modules (not all) fail to
load with the error "Relocation overflow vs section X" where X varies
per module. This isn't new with test9, I noticed it on earlier kernels
too but I'm not sure where it started. I compiled the kernel with 3.3.2
and ld 126.96.36.199.6, the newest in sarge. XFS and reiserfs were two
modules that I tried to load but had them fail.
I did see a few posts on lkml about this in even 2.5 kernels but no
fixes or even acknowledgments of a problem, is there some form of work
around or fix in the works? I'd be more than willing to test workarounds
or patches, the box isn't in production for anything.
I had this happen, but chalked it up to a binutils bug (that may or may
not be correct)... my "solution" was to compile a monolithic kernel for
the time being.
