Question System.map file


Hey,

I have built a custom kernel. One of the init functions is not listed in the System.map file. To be specific, it is cpu_probe() in arch/xx/kernel/setup.c.
Is it so that every function of the kernel code needs to be there in the System.map file?

TIA

*disclaimer* - i'm NOT a kernel hacker...

the system.map file is created when the kernel is compiled. if a function is missing from the file, then what's probably happened is that there is an old system.map file that's being used instead of the new one. the new system.map file should be in the directory where you compiled your kernel from, and should be placed in the /boot directory.
