RE: System.map Errors


Thanks for the help, I upgraded to 2.2.20 and it seemed to fix it.

I had the same kind of errors on intel PC's, all the same boxes but only
some of them had trouble. I was modifing kernel configuration and
recompiling with same source tree for the 9th or 10th time, and then i
went into trouble : 
   Warning: /boot/System.map-2.4.17-4 does not match kernel data. I
noticed that the last change i've made in the kernel was enabling ext3fs
support. I may have forgot to make distclean the source tree but i'm not
sure of that. Well what did i do to fix it ? I saved
/usr/src/linux/.config, then i removed the whole source tree and then i
recompiled from scratch the whole kernel and modules, well that was
sufficient to fix my problems. Hope this will help you.
