Description Kaj J. Niemi 2003-12-24 13:45:27 EST
Description of problem:
Lots of unnecessary output regarding unresolved symbols when
installing 2.6.0-1.21

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -ivh kernel-2.6.0-1.21.i686.rpm
Actual results:
/lib/modules/2.6.0-1.21/unsupported/drivers/video/sis/sisfb.ko needs
unknown symbol __floatsidf
/lib/modules/2.6.0-1.21/unsupported/drivers/video/sis/sisfb.ko needs
unknown symbol __fixunsdfsi
/lib/modules/2.6.0-1.21/unsupported/drivers/video/sis/sisfb.ko needs
unknown symbol __adddf3
/lib/modules/2.6.0-1.21/unsupported/drivers/video/sis/sisfb.ko needs
unknown symbol __divdf3
copy from /lib/modules/2.6.0-1.21/./kernel/fs/jbd/jbd.ko(elf32-i386)
to /tmp/initrd.sM4925/lib/jbd.ko(elf32-i 386)
copy from /lib/modules/2.6.0-1.21/./kernel/fs/ext3/ext3.ko(elf32-i386)
to /tmp/initrd.sM4925/lib/ext3.ko(elf3 2-i386)

Expected results:
No output

Additional info:
I think they're internal names of floating point functions in libgcc?
Wasn't there something a short while ago that the kernel isn't
supposed to have floating point stuff?
Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2003-12-24 13:56:34 EST
this is why the sis driver is in the kernel-unsupported rpm and not in
the main rpm....
Comment 2 Kaj J. Niemi 2003-12-24 14:34:56 EST
There is no more kernel-unsupported rpm?

Besides what's the use of having the sis driver when it most likely
won't work without someone relinking it against libgcc?
Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2003-12-24 14:37:25 EST
Dave: seems you broke something and this guy now has 2 pieces ;)
Comment 4 Kaj J. Niemi 2003-12-24 14:54:03 EST
I've got enough presents already, no more pieces for me thanks ;-)
Merry xmas :)

No more unresolved symbols while installing kernel-2.6.0-1.34. I'll
resolve as RAWHIDE or something..
