OK...what you need is to cp from /usr/src/linux "System.map" to /boot
and replace the file "System.map-<kernel_version>". Also, what I
normally do is mv /lib/modules/<kernel_version> to
/lib/modules/<kernel_version>.original (Just in case the "backward
compatibility" setting was not enabled during the kernel
configuration). BTW, I'd also bakcup the original System.map. You
never know when you might need it.
There, now it should not give any "unresolved symbols" during boot

Subject: Weird messages after kernel compiling...
Hi again, everyone.
I forgot to mention that after compiling my new kernel, I now get
modules-related error messages. If I remember correctly, I did the
make mrproper (cleaned everything right out)
make clean (don't know if this was really necessary, since I'd done
make bzImage (didn't notice any errors, I don't think)
copied bzImage to the boot directory (renamed) and ran 'lilo'
I saw a whole screen-full of "*** Unresolved symbols in
I noticed that most of them were modules that I don't use anyway, so
didn't care too much about it. It did, however, include "sound.o",
I believe I'll be needing that one.
QUESTION: Did I mess up during the kernel re-compile? If so, is
a way to get rid of these messages?
By the way, when I type "depmod -a", I get the same list of
"Unresolved..." error messages.
