Hi Everybody !

When I try to compile modutils-970104 or modutils-970116 I always get the following error message:

tamara:/home/install/modutils-970116 # make all
make -C util all
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/install/modutils-970116/util'
gcc -g -O -Wall -I../include -D_GNU_SOURCE -c -o sys_cm.o sys_cm.c

make[1]: *** [sys_qm.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/install/modutils-970116/util'
make: *** [all] Error 2

I have no idea where "__NR_query_module" comes from - its neither in the modutil-sources, nor anywhere
in my system include files.

I run kernel 2.0.28 with all masquerading patches (icmp, vdo, etc) btw. if that matters.

Obviously Im missing something important - but what ?!?

Any thoughts wellcome !

Cheers, Stefan !
