How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:  undefined symbols

Additional info:

How does one go about getting e1000 driver support for kickstart installations?

If you get unresolved symbols, you didn't rebuild the driver against the same

Comment 2 Ray Parish 2003-01-15 14:36:01 UTC
Can you please tell me how to get the BOOT kernel source?
I installed the kernel-2.4.8-3BOOT, and booted to it. I have the
kernel-source-2.4.8-3, which i compiled the module against.

Please see the driver disk development kit at
