    Annoying kernel compile errors

    I am just compiling the kernel the way I like it. I did a full install on slack8.1 so have everything in there already, and an extremely bloated kernel. Anyway, I get through the config fine. Then make deps, bzImage, and modules all have no problems. When I come to do make modules_install I get this
    cd /lib/modules/2.4.18; \
    mkdir -p pcmcia; \
    find kernel -path '*/pcmcia/*' -name '*.o' | xargs -i -r ln -sf ../{} pcmcia
    if [ -r ]; then /sbin/depmod -ae -F 2.4.18; fi
    depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.18/pcmcia/ibmtr_cs.o.gz
    depmod: init_trdev
    depmod: tr_type_trans
    depmod: register_trdev
    depmod: unregister_trdev
    depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.18/pcmcia/parport_cs.o.gz
    depmod: parport_proc_unregister
    depmod: parport_pc_probe_port
    depmod: parport_unregister_port
    make: *** [_modinst_post] Error 1
    Now that to me looks like there is a problem with 2 things. Firstly pcmcia, and then my parallel port. The stupid thing is I don't have either of these options enabled in the kernel. As always any help will be most appreciated.

    hello CP,
    i am pretty sure that because your default kernel and the one you have compiled are the same version you are having problems - option that i think may work :
    rename the /lib/modules/2.4.18 directory that currently there.
