What version of modutils do you have installed?
Comment 2 Bryce Nesbitt 2001-01-05 16:54:05 EST
This was a stock RH7.0 install, before I had to upgrade the kernel:

[bryce@hardhat bryce]# rpm -q modutils
modutils-2.3.14-3

I eventually copied RedHat's .config file and compiled my own 2.2.18 kernel. 
Worked great.
