Re: Please Explain This


You recompiled the kernel, moved the bzImage, and then did a "make clean"
you copied over a kernel from another machine.

When you make a kernel, System.map is generated too with the external kernel
symbols.  These are required by some "system-aware" programs, especially
those that look at kmem or /proc.

Either find the System.map that was made when you compiled the kernel, or
re-compile, and when you mover bzImage to /boot, move System.map too.
