Description Charles R. Anderson 2001-02-10 22:39:17 EST
I just upgraded my Red Hat 6.2 (zoot) sparc64 system to kernel-2.2.17-14,
and two modules have unresolved symbols:

#/sbin/depmod -a
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.2.17-14/misc/ffb.o
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.2.17-14/net/cipcb.o
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2001-02-13 19:15:33 EST
depmod -ae output is a little more helpful.
Comment 2 Charles R. Anderson 2001-02-13 19:20:37 EST
Ok, here it is:

#/sbin/depmod -ae
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.2.17-14/misc/ffb.o
depmod:         pte_wrprotect
depmod:         agp_enable
depmod:         io_remap_page_range
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.2.17-14/net/cipcb.o
depmod:         L_Blowfish_Decrypt
depmod:         L_Blowfish_Encrypt

Those modules are new in that kernel and should simply not have
been turned on.  You can ignore those errors for now; they will
go away in the next errata kernel we release.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
