Full Version: Kernel Incompatible And Unresolved Symbols Problem
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support
I have RedHat Linux AS 3.0 and need to install PATHpilot Pro 2.0 for our RAID testing. The problem is that the server component of the PATHpilot pro keeps on displaying errors which make me unable to start the server component.

this is the displayed error:

Hint: You are trying to load a module without a GPL compatible license and it has unresolved symbols. Contact the module supplier for assistance, only they can help you.

the PATHpilot installation is in an Installshield package and the RPM inside the Installshield package already have precompiled components and just copies them into the specified directories, so i can't recompile it for my kernel version...

i'm having trouble with this and would really be very grateful if anyone would have a solution or even a suggestion which i could try...
You may need to contact the company to obtain drivers for your specific kernel. Unfortunatly, some companies don't distribute their drivers correctly which makes them unable to be used with any other kernel than the one the company compiled them for.

For example, NVidia distributes their drivers with an open source wrapper script. The wrapper script allows for you to compile the module to conform to the current running kernel, so, they can distribute one package for all kernels.

If you can't rebuild the rpm they sent you (if there's no *.src.rpm package), then you will have to contact them unfortunatly.
