Description Lee Merrill 2004-08-20 17:37:26 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
Using insmod to install a module does not put the .bss and .sbss
symbols in /proc/ksyms.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
modutils-2.4.25-13

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. insmod myModule.o
2. cat /proc/ksyms
3. No .bss symbols are shown...
    

Actual Results:  I saw .text etc. symbols, but not .bss or .sbss ones

Expected Results:  I should have seen the .bss and .sbss symbols

Additional info:

It's an easy fix! In insmod.c, in the section_names[] array, there is
a missing comma between ".bss" and ".sbss".

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2004-08-20 18:47:10 UTC
This probably won't ever be fixed for FC, as FC2 and later need new
modutils code for 2.6 kernels. The patch has been sent upstream though
- thanks for the report!
