Unresolved simbol !!!!!!!
You fool the kernel modules and/or source in some step.

(optional : save you current kernel config in a file, check processor and

1) Please delete your kernel source tree (rm -rf /usr/src/linux and related)
2) Delete the modules tree in /lib/modules/2.xx.xx (rm -rf 


3) Unpack a fresh vanilla 2.4.19 kernel in /usr/src/linux-2.4.19
4) Make a symbolic link linux (ln -s /usr/src/linux-2.4.19 /usr/src/linux)
5) enter  in /usr/src/linux-2.4.19 and do : make mrproper && make menuconfig 
&& make dep && make modules && make modules_install && make bzImage
(optional : restore your configuration and RECHECK ALL OPTIONS when in make 
6) copy /usr/src/linux/2.4.19/arch/<your arch>/boot/bzImage AND 
/usr/src/linux-2.4.19/ in /boot and update your loader (lilo or 
grub : lilo -v -v check for errors in output)
7) do : makedep -ae 2.4.19 (ignore the warning and the unresolved symbol, you 
are running and old kernel)

8) reboot

9)If depmod -ae show 0 error you are now safe and could try to compile alsa 
from a fresh source dir.

Hope this help.
