The method I currently use is ( I am not sure whether this is correct, but it
works ) is :
1)copy the system map file from /usr/src/LinixXXX/system.map to
2)create a softlink in /boot for System.map to system.map.xyz
ls -l /boot
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 16 Jan 23 15:26 System.map ->
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 424815 Jan 23 17:05 System.map-2420c
