Kernel Modules: unresolved symbols.

Hi Mark,

Yes, I copied the file from /usr/src/linux to /boot, as described 
in the LFS-Book.

It worked flawless, but if I try "modprobe" I still have the same bunch of 
unresolved symbols as described in my last mail. I don't want to compile the 
modules in the kernel to skip the problem :))

I use RedHat 7.1 (Kernel 2.4.2-2) to build my LFS. I found one error which 
appeared when I executed "make modules_install", maybe it is the key.

cd /lib/modules/2.4.8; \
mkdir -p pcmcia; \
find kernel -path '*/pcmcia/*' -name '*.o' | xargs -i -r ln -sf ../{} pcmcia
if [ -r ]; then /sbin/depmod -ae -F  2.4.8; fi
/bin/sh: /sbin/depmod: No such file or directory
make: *** [_modinst_post] Error 127

Any ideas?
