unresolved symbol
Hi, I´ve never seen this error before and don´t know what to do
after making many tries im stuck.

The thing is that my network card does not work, it is down although my suse 9 installed it well.

it said the I must active the driver for that network card.

after trying to load the module into the kernel 2.4 through this command modprobe 8139too it returns me the following message:

unresolved symbol

it tells me this many times, I also executed this command insmod 8139too and it says just the same.

I also executed this command RCNETWORK START and it returns the following:

lo fine
eth0 failed

what should I do ? do I have to install another version of the kernel ?

my network card is a real tek

thank you in advanced.

When it says "Unresolved symbol", it usually also says which symbol is missing. It may look like gibberish to you, but it still contains usefull information.

Please copy all the error messages (no matter how many times) in full, preferably using copy/paste or some such, and post here.

Welcome to LQ and good luck

looks like the module was compiled with CONFIG_MODVERSION ON
but your kernel was compiled CONFIG_MODVERSION OFF
or the module has CONFIG_SMP ON
and the kernel has CONFIG_SMP OFF
or something like that

that's what i think anyway

look at
cat /proc/kallsyms | grep printk

where did this module come from ? i recognize it as an addon yes
did you compile it yourself or get a binary from somewhere
