Re: syslog messages NOT!



No, and YOU should NOT!

If you do then you probably recompiled or installed a new kernel and missed
a step.

The file is normally located in the /usr/src/linux/System.map after a kernel
compilation

A copy of it must be moved to /boot with the same name as the kernel you are
running...

Thus if you are using a Redhat Kernel you need a

/boot/System.map-2.0.35-2

If you've installed your own kernel and are NOT using the RH (mis) naming
convention(s) it should simply be called

/boot/System.map

If you installed a RH Kernel RPM update, then you did not install ALL of the
kernel RPMS as indicated in the eratta.
