Unresolved symbols


Hi All,

Need some help with configuring the Kernel. I'm trying to get Advance Power Management running on my laptop (Dell Inspiron 5150). I compiled the kernel 2.4.22 and added apm support as a module.

But when i try to load the apm modules through modconf, i get the following errors.

/lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/arch/i386/kernel/apm.o: unresolved symbol default_idle
/lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/arch/i386/kernel/apm.o: unresolved symbol machine_real_restart
/lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/arch/i386/kernel/apm.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/arch/i386/kernel/apm.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/arch/i386/kernel/apm.o: insmod apm failed

Installation failed.
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/arch/i386/kernel/apm.o
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/drivers/acpi/ac.o

depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/drivers/acpi/processor.o
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/drivers/acpi/thermal.o

As far as i know, these type of messages pop up when the modules trying to be loded from the kernel thats running, i think. But i'm quite positive that its not the case here.

Any sort of help would be greatly appreciated.

Also would anyone know where i can get drivers for my internal modem, Broadcom, BCM V.90 56k modem. Unfortunately its a soft modem and couldn't do anything about it, as thats what come this the machine.

Thanks in advance
Dimi

Sometimes you need to do a "make clean" before
the modules will compile properly... and -sorry
if you feel insulted by this question- how did you
go about installing your recompiled kernel?


Cheers,
Tink

Well I do make clean before i compile the kernel, following is the procedure i use.

"make dep clean bzImage modules modules_install"

and i've gotta running kernel. What i don't understand is, all other modules got no problems, just the apm.

and can not been in module.", what does this mean?
