Hello all,

i use a MBX860 which is connectet via NFS to its root filesystem. The
kernel i use is a 2.2.13 which has /proc filesystem enabled. After the
MBX-board is booted i have no access to the symbol table.
To be shure it's not a failure in my modul, i use the easiest one i
found (hello-modul from Alessandro Rubini). Below you can see what's
happend after the insmod command.

#insmod -v hello.o

Loading failed! The module symbols (from linux-2.2.13) don't match your

Also the /proc directory is empty.
I have no idea and so i would be happy if anyone can tell me what's
going wrong.
