Re: Missing modules from previous kernel

Aren't they compiled or aren't they installed? What is the output of:

make modules
make modules_install

After modules_install, is there a directory in /lib/modules matching in name your kernel version (i.e., the output of

uname -r

after you reboot with the new kernel)?

Anyway, on 2.6 kernels, it should be enough to do so:

make modules_install
cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/<thenameyoulikeandyouputinthebootloaderconfigfile>

That is to say, with 'make' you compile the modules too.
