unresolved symbols

I ran "depmod -a" and got these two errors.....

depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/crypto/proc.o
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/crypto/autoload.o

Any idea what might be going on? thanks.

The depmod utitlity cross-checks and catalogs the dependencies of all the kernel modules located under /lib/modules/yourkernelversion (uname -r), some of these modules it seems don't quite implement everything necessary to "get away clean" and as a result some of the external function calls they reference are "unresolved" meaning they can't be resolved to any existing library and if the module actually "calls" these functions, it's segmentation fault time or at the least error exit. I have several modules that do this and yet still work, so it's possible that this is no problem, especially if you do an lsmod and find that those modules (proc.o autoload.o) aren't being used. I appears they are for some cryptographic function which maybe you're not using, you could always move them out of that directory to /tmp and run depmod -a again, then see if your system gets along without them.
