Description Douglas Campbell 2002-06-30 06:10:25 UTC

Description of problem:
After upgrading to 2.4.18-5, using rpm -Fvh, rebooted from previous correctly
operating 2.4.18-3 (base RH Linux 7.3) system.  System refused to load tulip
modprobe tulip indicates desire to access /lib/modules/2.4.18-3/modules.dep
(which does not exist after upgrade)
All files exist under /lib/modules/2.4.18-5/... and have dates "Jun 10 12:26" or
thereabouts.  Under /boot, the binary file "map" continues to reference
2.4.18-3, but all other references have been updated to 2.4.18-5.

Attempted to repair - built softlink 2.4.18-3 -> 2.4.18-5 under /lib/modules and
reperformed modprobe tulip; tulip then claims many missing kernel symbols (e.g.,
pci_write_config_dword_R57e8add4), followed by insmod failure.  A reboot does
not fix the problem.

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

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install vanilla redhat7.3 on i586 system with tulip NIC.
2. Install i586 versions of kernel patches to upgrade kernel from 2.4.18-3 to
3. reboot

Additional info:

Two bugs appear to be present.  I don't think modprobe should be asking for
2.4.18-3 stuff after the upgrade.  The version of tulip provided doesn't appear
to match the kernel.  I have sources and will try to rebuild.

Comment 1 Douglas Campbell 2002-06-30 22:45:44 UTC
Reran install and performed upgrade; selected smp kernel.  Install updated only
the kernel.  After reboot, system is again operational and tulip device operational.

Since reporter indicated bug disappeared for him, closing with 'worksforme'.
