Description Alex Stewart 2006-03-18 13:35:15 EST
Description of problem:

I just updated to the 2.6.15-1.2054 kernel, rebuilt a proprietary kernel module
(nvidia binary driver), and got the following error trying to load it:

  nvidia: module license 'NVIDIA' taints kernel.
  nvidia: Unknown symbol print_tainted

It appears that this kernel build is incomplete.  This may be related to a GCC
optimization issue which appears to have been discovered and supposedly fixed
back in FC4 (bug 149758)

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Install 2054 build kernel
2.  Attempt to load module which references 'print_tainted'
Actual results:

  Unknown symbol print_tainted

Expected results:

  Successful module load

Sorry, the bug I probably should have referenced which identifies the actual
problem is bug 150150
