kernel 2.4.24 compile error


Howdy gurus,

so I'm compiling along happily, everything's going fine, I make modules_install and after a while it barfs this back at me:

Code:
mkdir -p pcmcia; \
find kernel -path '*/pcmcia/*' -name '*.o' | xargs -i -r ln -sf ../{} pcmcia
if [ -r System.map ]; then /sbin/depmod -ae -F System.map  2.4.24; fi
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.24/kernel/crypto/autoload.o
depmod:         crypto_alg_lookup
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.24/kernel/crypto/proc.o
depmod:         crypto_alg_sem
depmod:         crypto_alg_list
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.24/kernel/drivers/media/radio/miropcm20.o
depmod:         aci_version_R93350c87
depmod:         aci_rw_cmd_Rcc7c4cd8
depmod:         aci_port_R0d82adb6
make: *** [_modinst_post] Error 1
Looks like a .config problem, but I did not enable PCMCIA or the crypto libs... WTF? Has anyone solved this before?

TIA

B.

did you run 'make dep' before continuing with the rest of the build?

yeah... of course... I have compiled several kernels before on various (x86) hardware, but never seen this before... ah well I'll post the answer when I get through it...

Thanks for the response

Thanks for the responses...

I'm compiling a kernel downloaded as the latest stable 2.4 release from ftp.kernel.org around Jan. 27, and I did have a 2.4.24 before, which had the same problem (I deleted /lib/modules/2.4.24 before I did a make mrproper this time, as well as the /boot/[bzImage|System.map]). This is a p2 with basically nothing but a semi-old but reliable IDE HDD, 64MB RAM and a RealTek 8139 compatible card in it, on an oldish ASUS mobo with nothing integrated. It's running RedHat 7.3 right now but as a public LAMP it's not really secure enough to rely on, and I would much rather trust it than totally cut off its external access.

Thanks again, ideas welcome

B.

Uh.... I got it, though unfortunately I'm not certain exactly what I did to make it work. First I enabled sound support without actually building any modules, and did the same with amateur radio support. Then I opened up the .config file and set
CONFIG_SOUND_OSS=m
after which it compiled and installed fine, and is now happily ticking away.

Hope this helps someone

B.
