Hello together,

do I need other module-init-tools for a 64-bit kernel than I need for
When trying to load a module I get the following output:
| insmod: error inserting \
| '/lib/modules/2.6.13-rc3-mad-mips-1-64/kernel/fs/isofs/isofs.ko': -1 \
| Cannot allocate memory

in dmesg:
| allocation failed: out of vmalloc space - use vmalloc=<size> to increase \
| size.

It happens with every module. If I'd need other tools these messages are
confusing. I didn't try "vmalloc=..." as I think module loading wouldn't
be "disabled" in such a way by default...

If I need special 64-bit module-init-tools, is there a way to build them
without a 64-bit glibc as all of my userspace stuff is 32-bit?
