I will have a go at both. Further analysis indicates that the modules
are simply not being copied/written to /lib/modules/2.2.17. That is,
there are only three that are: ppp_deflate.o, bsd_comp.o (in
/lib/../net), and zft-compressor.o (in /lib/.../misc). There are no
other subdirectories, and modules.dep contains only those three.
Interestingly, the kernel source (i.e. in /usr/src/linux shows exactly
those three modules in /usr/src/linux/drivers/modules, and no others).
If I attempt to insmod rtl8139.o, for example (I'm trying to set up a
home network), using /usr/src/linux/drivers/net/rtl8139.o, I get the
error message: "couldn't find the kernel version the module was
Would it suffice to simply copy all the drivers to /lib/modules/2.2.17?
