I had managed to run 2.4.18, was trying to upgrade to 2.6.3.
Downloaded the source from a debian mirror site, do a 'dpkg -i',
'tar', 'make menu-config', all without problem. But when I next do a
'make-kpkg buildpackage', I had typical msg:
depmod: Unresolved symbols in ....
This msg occurred for several .ko files.
For 2.6.x kernels you will (always, I think) need to install the package
module-init-tools. Although from what you have posted, I'm not sure that
this is the immediate problem here, since you are having problems building.
Which version of gcc are you using? I don't recall whether the 2.6.x
kernels can be compiled with gcc-2.95. On this machine I compile with
gcc-3.3. If you have another version of gcc installed, my suggestion is
to give that a try.
