SubjectRe: Linux 2.4.0ac11
On Wed, 24 Jan 2001, Alan Cox wrote:

Modules don't load. I do usually compile heavily modular kernels, with ide
and ext2fs being also modular. When trying to load them from initrd, I have
the following output:

=== Cut ===
ide-mod.o: Can't handle sections of type 32131
ide-probe-mod.o: Can't handle sections of type 256950710
ext2.o: Can't handle sections of type 688840897
=== Cut ===

I suspect that all modules are affected, but can't check it because kernel
is unable to mount root filesystem.

All of ac9-ac11 behave the same. ac4, vanilla 2.4.0 and a whole bunch of
pre's are fine, so it looks like something was broken between ac4 and ac9 (I
didn't compile anything inbetween).

I use gcc-2.95.2, binutils-, modutils-2.4.2, glibc-2.2.1. The
initrd image is romfs. I don't think something was broken in romfs, 'coz
all the programs run just fine outta the image (static ash, static insmod).

Config is available and can be sent on request. Please let me know if I can
help to find out what causes such a bug.
