reinstall-->can't find modules w/new kernel
I just reinstalled from Potato CD's to clean out some very messy stuff I had
done to my system with Woody... :)
I pulled out a custom 2.4 kernel package which had been made previously by
make-kpkg, and installed it. There are a number of modules, including
soundcore (for the ALSA driver I use). On reboot I get a series of messages
stating that modules are not found, and when I attempt to load soundcore
with insmod, it also fails with the same message (module not found). A
recompile of the kernel from sources and reinstall also fails, so it's
nothing weird about the build, AFAICT.
I thought that the kernel .deb package would have managed this for me, but
depmod -a does nothing. I have tried this several times..
I just got soundcore to install, but that was accomplished by specifying the
entire path to the driver. I thought this information wasn't required. Am
I wrong about this?
Is there something I'm blind to that makes obvious sense here??
Would appreciate any help!
It is not so very important for a person to learn facts. For that he
doesn't really need a college education, for he can learn them from
books. The value of an education in a liberal arts college is not the
learning of many facts but the training of the mind to thinking--something
that cannot be learned from books. Albert Einstein
