Description paolo.saggese 1999-01-20 20:39:52 UTC
Program "lsof" does not work on my RH 5.2 boxes:

[root@pcsaggese /tmp]# lsof
lsof: WARNING: compiled for Linux release 2.0.34; this is
lsof: kernel symbol address mismatch: get_options
      get_kernel_syms() value is 0x108d30; /boot/
value is 0x108cf8.
      There were 335 additional mismatches.
      /boot/ and the booted kernel may not be a
matched set.
[root@pcsaggese /tmp]#

I have upgraded to kernel 2.0.36 using the official RedHat
updates rpms.

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-01-20 21:34:59 UTC
For now, try rebuilding from the lsof src.rpm, as in
	rpm --rebuild lsof-4.37-1.src.rpm
You might also try the 4.39 src rpm in Raw Hide.

Packaging for lsof that will work with any 2.0.x kernel cannot
be done. It may be possible with a 2.2.0 kernel ...

Comment 2 paolo.saggese 1999-01-21 20:01:59 UTC
I had already tried rebuilding lsof from the .src.rpm [both the one
for RHL5.2 and the one from "RawHide"]. Unfortunately, none worked.

...will wait 2.2.0
