loadable modules help -- unresolved symbols

I would like to get a better understanding of what is going on with the

I have a module I have developed using sources from 2.4.2 and 2.4.26.
When I try and do a forced load of a module compiled under one kernel,
into the other I get a ream of unresolved symbols.

Yet both modules can be loaded into the kernel whose sources they have been respectively compiled with....

Obviously both kernels have the pieces needed to load the module. Is there some sort of differing name-mangling that is occuring from build-to-build?

Any response is appreciated.

It is not advisable to load modules from different kernels. You should stick to the modules that were built for the specific kernel. However, you do have the option to do mix-and-match. I believe it was called module versioning.
