Problems installing Dell Openmanage 1.2 onto my PE2650

You might try performing a 'depmod -a' to ensure your module dependencies
are set correctly and then try again.   Or try performing 'insmod esm.o'
before 'insmod dcesm.o'.

I'm guessing there is another module that needs to be loaded before dcesm.o
so the symbols are available for it.

Dear Jason,

As I mentioned in my previous email, I have followed all of these
instructions and I can sucessfully get the module to compile OK.

The problem I have (which is not mentioned anywhere that I can find in the
list submissions) is that I cannot insert the module - I get unresolved
symbol errors:

[root at dfgsrv misc]# insmod dcesm.o
dcesm.o: unresolved symbol __wake_up
dcesm.o: unresolved symbol register_chrdev
dcesm.o: unresolved symbol EsmStopDev
dcesm.o: unresolved symbol EsmDeviceIoControl
dcesm.o: unresolved symbol sleep_on
dcesm.o: unresolved symbol EsmDD1SecTimerDpcRoutine
dcesm.o: unresolved symbol EsmDDStart
dcesm.o: unresolved symbol EsmStartDev
dcesm.o: unresolved symbol EsmDDStop
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.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
