#1 Unknown symbol in kernel 2.6.14+

When I've tried to install the module (via 'insmod') I
get the following message:

"insmod: error inserting 'modules/flash.ko': -1 Unknown
symbol in module"

The same occurs with the module rtl8139_flash.ko.

'dmesg' revealed the missing symbols:

"inter_module_get"
"verify_area"

The compilation log also warns about the missing symbols.

Google revealed me that "verify_area" was removed and
replaced by "access_ok" in kernel 2.6.14 and above.

I include the log of the compilation process.

I hope this can help for fix the problem.

Regards, Grachi

    It's seems that the inter_module communication api is
    deprecated and will be removed in newer versions.
