    Default Make modules_install fails with unresolved symbols error

    Dear All

    I am trying to compile a 2.4.22(kernel.org) kernel on an install of
    RH7.3. I have carried out the following

    make mrproper
    make menuconfig
    make dep
    make clean
    make bzImage
    make modules
    make install
    make modules_install


    Part way through the make modules_install the install fails with the
    following message:

    cd /lib/modules/2.4.22; \
    mkdir -p pcmcia; \
    find kernel -path '*/pcmcia/*' -name '*.o' | xargs -i -r ln -sf ../{}
    pcmcia
    if [ -r System.map ]; then /sbin/depmod -ae -F System.map 2.4.22; fi
    depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in
    /lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/drivers/ide/ide-core.o
    depmod: init_cmd640_vlb
    make: *** [_modinst_post] Error 1


    I have tried looking on the lists for similiar errors but most seem to
    occur on rebotting the machine. I assume there is a problem with the
    cmd640 module(??) but the only reference to it in .config is
    CONFIG_BLK_DEV_CMD640. I have tried both switching this on and off
    with the same result. I have also tried deleteing /lib/modules/2.4.22
    and re running make modules_install with no success.

    Can any one tell me:

    a) What this error message is trying to tell me?

    b) How I can fix it?


    Many thanks

    This may not fix your problem but "make install" should be the
    last command instead of "make modules_install".
