SubjectRe: warning during make modules
Date
Hi Keith,

Thanks for your reply. The below mentioned warning messages where displayed
while using modutils 2.3.22. Guess I need to apply the patch you mentioned
to removed all the anonying messages.

As I've not applied any patch before, pls advise where should I download the
patch and the instructions for patching pls.

Thanks.
