    Default Warning messages about unknown symbols

    Hi!

    I have openSUSE 11.4. After a recent online update, I get the following warning messages, whenever I install a new package:

    Code:
    WARNING: /lib/modules/2.6.37.6-0.11-desktop/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/iwlwifi/iwlagn.ko needs unknown symbol ieee80211_get_tkip_key
    WARNING: /lib/modules/2.6.37.6-0.11-desktop/kernel/net/bluetooth/l2cap.ko needs unknown symbol bt_err
    WARNING: /lib/modules/2.6.37.6-0.11-desktop/kernel/net/bluetooth/l2cap.ko needs unknown symbol hci_unregister_proto
    WARNING: /lib/modules/2.6.37.6-0.11-desktop/kernel/net/bluetooth/l2cap.ko needs unknown symbol hci_register_proto

    WARNING: /lib/modules/2.6.37.6-0.11-desktop/kernel/net/bluetooth/sco.ko needs unknown symbol hci_unregister_proto
    WARNING: /lib/modules/2.6.37.6-0.11-desktop/kernel/net/bluetooth/sco.ko needs unknown symbol hci_register_proto
    The current kernel is: 2.6.37.6-0.11-desktop

    Is there a way that I could get rid of these warnings?

    Thanks!

    You got a faulty install of that kernel. Try using YaST and reload the kernel.
    That should fix it.

    Thanks. I will try it out as soon as I hook my laptop to the internet. How do I re-install the kernel? Do I simply start software management and click on the kernel and choose re-install?
