Kernel 2.6.0 <=> QM_MODULES: Function not implemented


Hi mates, I've been struggling for getting a free-bug kernel instalation, but I haven't been able to do it so far. I get :

QM_MODULES: Function not implemented

when booting or everytime I try to recompile the kernel. It appears as well when I execute the command:


Quote:
depmod -V
depmod version 2.4.22
depmod: QM_MODULES: Function not implemented
I've read a lot about it and it seems I have to install a new package called 'module_init_tools' which substitutes the package 'modutils', but I have found neither the place where to download the right package nor the way of installing it. Is there anybody who might help me to solve that?, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks to all.

Read the Readme in the Kernel sources. This should always be done before even doing a make config...

For future reference, look at the 'Changes' document in the Documentation directory (linux-2.6.0/Documentation/Changes) for the minimum requirements and also where to get the upgrades

re: QM_MODULES: Function not implemented

which version of module utils should be installed. ?
what documentation addresses this problem?
please do not post vague unhelpful replies.
if you know the solution but are too arogant to
give details then please at least quote the specific
documented solution with a full valid url.

hmmm i`m using slackware 9.0. Today i`ve compiled 2.6.0 - patched to 2.6.1 kernel. And i was very suprised with this QM_modules error . So first thing i did was taking a look here on linuxquestions. I`ve installed

module-init-tools-0.9.13.tar.gz --> this

and when i do lsmod i still get this QM_modules error :-/. Acording to instructions here on forum everything should be fine, am i right?

best regards

i installed module-init-tools-0.9.14.tar on kernel 2.6.0, but

> lsmod
Module Size Used by

In the Modules and Size section are normal, but the Used by section is all -. I was wondering if anyone could help. Thanks, Chen

mod-init-tools compilation fails

I tried to install module-init-tools-3.0-pre5.tar.bz2 from ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kerne...rusty/modules/ and received the following error during compilation:

[root@bla module-init-tools-3.0-pre5]# make
gcc -g -O2 -Wunused -Wall -Wcast-align -o insmod.static -static insmod.o
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lc
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: ** [insmod.static] Erro 1

I had already run ./configure and it didn't present any error messages. Does anyone know what this means?

Also: on the README for the 2.6.0 kernel it says:

"
Module-Init-Tools
-----------------

A new module loader is now in the kernel that requires module-init-tools
to use. It is backward compatible with the 2.4.x series kernels.
"

Then if it is backward compatible, shouldn't modutils from 2.4 work fine w/ 2.6.0?

I got it working now too but I get this exact same problem as dinningc. Heres a sample output from lsmod:

Module Size Used by
snd_pcm_oss 49060 -
snd_mixer_oss 16704 -
snd_intel8x0 28356 -
snd_ac97_codec 51972 -
snd_pcm 85860 -
snd_timer 20516 -


Anyone knows what could be causing this?

No, backward compatible means that the new system understands the old one, ie you can load 2.4 modules with the new module-init-tools.

identical amazing exactly the same problem i am downloading 2.6.1 now incase it is the patch also module-init-tools-0.9.13 might not work well it says in Documentatyion/Changes that the kernel only requires module-init-tools-0.9.10 so might try that instead

You should have some glibc libraries installed. I had the same problem and I managed to bypass it that way.

Good luck
