Description Ronan Waide 2003-07-07 16:32:37 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
Using the Red Hat kernel source package and starting from the default config, I
enabled ACPI and modularised APM. I did a make mrproper, make dep, make bzImage
modules, make install modules_install. The following errors came from the depmod
phase of modules_install:

depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in
depmod:         cpu_gdt_table
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in
depmod:         acpi_get_firmware_table

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. make mrproper in /usr/src/linux-2.4
2. copy /boot/config-* to /usr/src/linux-2.4/.config
3. make xconfig, enable ACPI and modularise APM
4. make dep bzImage modules install modules_install


Actual Results:  
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in
depmod:         cpu_gdt_table
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in
depmod:         acpi_get_firmware_table

Expected Results:  Clean compile & install

Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2003-07-07 16:36:50 UTC
you can't enable acpi in this kernel.
as for APM... well.. hm.

Comment 3 Ronan Waide 2003-07-07 16:38:59 UTC
Aha, ok, thanks. I'll go play with a stock kernel instead. If it's no big deal
to you guys about the APM error you can close this bug.

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/
