problem with modules install after installing module-init-tools


hi,

i'm in the process of upgrading my kernel to 2.6.0 on Mandrake 9.2. I've gotten to the point where I type 'make modules_install.' The first time I did it I got a warning about possibly needing to install module-init-tools. Then it went ahead with the process and finished with some unresolved symbol errors (is that supposed to happen?).

I then installed module-init-tools and then ran make modules_install again. This time it stops on this output..

Code:
  .........(other output)
  INSTALL net/x25/x25.ko
  INSTALL drivers/block/xd.ko
  INSTALL fs/xfs/xfs.ko
  INSTALL drivers/net/pcmcia/xirc2ps_cs.ko
  INSTALL drivers/md/xor.ko
  INSTALL drivers/net/hamradio/yam.ko
  INSTALL drivers/net/yellowfin.ko
  INSTALL drivers/net/wan/z85230.ko
  INSTALL drivers/atm/zatm.ko
  INSTALL drivers/char/ftape/zftape/zftape.ko
  INSTALL drivers/char/ftape/compressor/zft-compressor.ko
  INSTALL lib/zlib_deflate/zlib_deflate.ko
  INSTALL lib/zlib_inflate/zlib_inflate.ko
  INSTALL drivers/media/video/zr36060.ko
  INSTALL drivers/media/video/zr36067.ko
if [ -r System.map ]; then /sbin/depmod -ae -F System.map  2.6.01; fi
WARNING: /lib/modules/2.6.01/kernel/fs/jffs/jffs.ko needs unknown symbol set_special_pids
this doesn't happen if I don't install module-init-tools. How do I fix this?

thanks

well, you did it right. the warning comes for jfs - so, why dont u disable it when configuring the kernel?

module-init-tools is needed for 2.6 - so, keep.
disable jfs support while configuring your kernel (when u do make Xconfig or make menuconfig ...)

h/w,

i noticed you have a Nvidia card as well. Somehow after I select the new kernel at lilo, the hard disk has some activity but then all i get is a blank screen. i've looked around and it seems it may be a framebuffer problem. i think i have all the selected options I should have, (VESA, VGA, etc). any idea whats wrong?
