Hmm, I have the same problem. RH8, nforce1.
I got the kernel sources and compiled them and whatnot just to make sure everything was present. But I didn't use the recompiled kernel. I assumed it matched the current one. But the size is a little different eventhough I use the config file that was put there by the kernel install.
So after compiling the nforce dirvers I get the
[root@erasmus temp]# depmod -ae
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.18-27.8.0/kernel/drivers/net/nvnet.o
So I am assuning as you do that I must actually run the compiled kernel. This is honestly, rediculous. I mean even if the compile is slightly different, it should still come from the same source.
What is up with this???
