Problem when upgrade to kernel 2.4.24


Hi, recently I upgrade to kernel 2.4.24. I download it recompiled from slackware.com it upgrade fine, but every time I boot my machine i get this messages in all the boot proccess:

Note: /etc/modules.conf is more recent than /lib/modules/2.4.24/modules.dep

I got those messages in all modules dependencies boot. I don't think thats Ok, maybe is not a big, big problem. but there is a way to resolve this?

No i didn't do that because i download the package kernel-2.4.24.tgz from slackware.com for install those packages you just have to do:

upgradepkg kernel

I did it before whit version 2.4.23 and didn't have problem at all. So it surprise me that now, did that. I didn't download the kernel source, because i haven't need it upgrading the kernel the way i say before. anyway if someone had the same problem and know any solution for this bug?? maybe could reply.

I run it depmod as root, but nothing happens it doesn't say nothing to me. I restart my box and still have the message:

Note: /etc/modules.conf is more recent than bla bla

Someone told me that this was a modutils bug, I don't know my worried is that this problem could leave a bug in my box than other people could used to hack me. If this doesn't make any problem like a big bug or something, I don't mind continue receiving this message, cause my Box still works fine, I haven't had any problem at all.

Someone else jump in here, since I've never used
this way to upgrade a kernel before ....

Will upgradepkg touch his lilo-configuration
and actually make the machine boot the new
kernel without manual interaction?

Little_ball, what output does
uname -r
give you?


Cheers,
Tink

K, so it does pick up the right kernel.

what does
ls -l /etc/modules.conf
and
ls -l /lib/modules/2.4.24/modules.dep
give you?

Maybe your problem is a
/etc/modules.conf
with a creation date in the future?


Cheers,
Tink

root@Marian:/home/marian# ls -l /lib/modules/2.4.24/modules.dep
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 136201 Jan 1 1999 /lib/modules/2.4.24/modules.dep

I can't do that, because I already have upgrade kernel package, And when i tried to upgrade it again, it skip the package because is installed Well I guess i would have to wait to next kernel release and update it whit the correct date. Thanks by the way.
