To be sure that i did not mix things up, i untarred and recompiled the
kernel sources. It's a fresh kernel, and a fresh System.map.

Solves only some of the problems. Instead of showing a list of all
2.4.22 modules, only:

[root at ns1 /boot]# depmod -ae -F /boot/System.map-2.4.25 2.4.25
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in
depmod:         gamma_driver_irq_postinstall
depmod:         gamma_driver_irq_preinstall
depmod:         gamma_driver_irq_uninstall
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in
depmod:         sis_malloc_Ra3329ed5
depmod:         sis_free_Rced25333
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in
depmod:         mod_firmware_load_R39e3dd23
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in
depmod:         video_register_device_R28efa16a
depmod:         video_unregister_device_Rf5332580
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in
depmod:         register_sound_special_R3333385b
depmod:         unregister_sound_special_R99c95fa5

There should not be those problems ...

Kind regards,
