Re: DLKM

I am guessing you may have made some changes to your kernel recently. Here's some info I found on this...hope it helps:

Normally this error indicates that the current version of the kernel does not match the current version of the symbol table symtab in /stand/dlkm.
This can be verified with the following command:

echo mod_initialized/D | adb -k /stand/vmunix /dev/mem

You can resolve this issue by using the following procedure:
1. cd /stand/build
2. /usr/lbin/sysadm/system_prep -s system
3. mk_kernel -s system
4. kmupdate /stand/build/vmunix_test
5. shutdown -r 0

Note: Do not use reboot.

Re: DLKM

James,

I had this problem and looked it up on the Knowledge base. It's likely that the kernel '/stand/vmunix' does not match the running kernel. DLKM is a kernel module.

Have you regenerated the kernel and deferred a reboot? If so, then either reboot to get the new kernel or move your /stand/vmunix.prev to /stand/vmunix to revert your kernel.

Hope this helps,
John

Re: DLKM

On HPUX 11, make sure you use kmupdate as opposed to manually copying over the new kernel.
