Make Modules_install unresolved symbols

I don't know if I will ever get leave this newbies area... I wonder if I will be a newbie forever!

After recently compliling the kernel when I did make modules install near the end it gave a few errors

Unresolved symbols in lib/modules/2.3.22/kernel/drivers/i2c/scx200_i2c.o
depmod scx200_gpio_configure
depmod scx200_gpio_base
depmod scx200_gpio_shadow

I thought hmmm

Then after installing drivers for my linmodem I got the same error.

Is this because missed out compiling somthing that this scx200_i2c.o driver? If it is could someone give me a hint as to what I might need to put back/make as a module in the kernel?

Are you doing this in Slackware??
according to the Slackware Essentials Book,
you do not have to --make modules install!!--
goto and read up on this, it will show you
the proper Slackware Way to configure the kernel..........

Thanks Iīm going to go have a bit of a read up

I have been following the Compiling guide for newbies that I got of here ages ago and it seems to work fine... only I donīt know EXACTLY what I do and donīt need in the Kernal... so although the way I am doing the compilation I donīt think is directly realated to my current problem.... I am going to take your advice and go have a read on the slackware site.
