Hello. I'm trying to build a working afs client for NetBSD 1.2_BETA and
1.2. (This is using the work of John Kohl and Derik Atkins at MIT) I have
the libafs.o module built, but am having trouble running it through
modload. I have a kernel which doesn't have DDB enabled on it and on which
the modload works. Unfortunately, if I use a kernel with DDB in it, I get
#/sbin/modload -o /usr/vice/etc/dkload/netbsd_afs -eafsmodload /usr/vice/etc/dkload/libafs.o
ld: /usr/vice/etc/dkload/libafs.o: nonexternal relocation invalid
modload: can't prelink `/usr/vice/etc/dkload/libafs.o' creating `/usr/vice/etc/dkload/netbsd_afs'
ld -A /netbsd -e _afsmodload -o /usr/vice/etc/dkload/netbsd_afs -T 0 /usr/vice/etc/dkload/libafs.o
Bad system call - core dumped
Can anyone tell me what this message is trying to convey?
I was under the impression that lodable modules should work acros multiple
kernels, as long as the symbols were defined?
