debian funkiness with new kernels


i'm pretty new to debian, altough i've been using linux (mostly redhat)
for quite a while.  i've upgraded and recompiled the kernel hundreds of
times, but i've never seen these problems.

first off, i'm using woody, so i fully expect this to be the root of my
problems...  i'm constantly "apt-get update"ing and "apt-get
upgrade"ing, so i'm pretty confident that i'm using the most up-to-date

i have two main issues with debian on my thinkpad and they may or may
not be inter-related:

0. whenever i do a ps or some other commands (i can't recall some of the
other yet, but i know ps trigers this), i get the following errors...

        in 2.2.18-pre15..
        {module_list} {module_list_R__ver_module_list}
        Warning: /boot/System.map-2.2.18pre15 does not match kernel data.
        Warning: /boot/System.map has an incorrect kernel version.
        Warning: /usr/src/linux/System.map has an incorrect kernel version.

        in 2.4.0-test9..

        {usb_alloc_bus} {__VERSIONED_SYMBOL(usb_alloc_bus)}
        Warning: /boot/System.map does not match kernel data.
        {usb_alloc_bus} {__VERSIONED_SYMBOL(usb_alloc_bus)}
        Warning: /usr/src/linux/System.map does not match kernel data.

i could understand the last two warnings in 2.2.18-pre15 as the kernel
is in /boot/vmlinuz-2.2.18pre15 and the symbols are in
/boot/System.map-2.2.18pre15, but why does it complain about
/boot/System.map-2.2.18pre15?  it's there, it was the one produced when
i compiled the kernel that's running...  heck, what's complaining?  the

1. the other error has to do with /usr/local/lib:  any library put in
/usr/local/lib cannot be dynamically linked to a binary needing them.
yes, i put /usr/local/lib in /etc/ld.so.conf and ran ldconfig, but this
doesn't help.  instead, i get the following error:

/usr/local/lib  :
ldconfig: Can't open directory /usr/local/lib   : No such file or directory

yeah, /usr/local/lib is there.  ideas?

i really want to stay with debian and i can see how it's quite nice, but
i'm heading out of town for a while in a week and i need to be
comfortable with my laptop.  errors like this make me very
uncomfortable.  can anyone help?  is there something i have to do with
debian to make it play nicely with hand-rolled kernels, libraries, etc?
