Re: DANGEROUS ?? help needed


I haven't discovered yet what happend to the symlink. I may have a bad
disk or the file utilities are corrupted.

I tried to compile a new kernel 2.4.1 and 2.4.2 but when I try to
install the modules some of the directories made as files!!

make modules
make modules_install
make -C  kernel modules_install
make[1]: Entering directory `/export/src/kernel-source-2.4.1/kernel'
make[1]: Nothing to be done for `modules_install'.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/export/src/kernel-source-2.4.1/kernel'
make -C  drivers modules_install
make[1]: Entering directory `/export/src/kernel-source-2.4.1/drivers'
make -C block modules_install
make[2]: Entering directory `/export/src/kernel-source-2.4.1/drivers/block'
mkdir -p /lib/modules/2.4.1/kernel/drivers/block/
mkdir: `/lib/modules/2.4.1/kernel' exists but is not a directory
make[2]: *** [_modinst__] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/export/src/kernel-source-2.4.1/drivers/block'
make[1]: *** [_modinst_block] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/export/src/kernel-source-2.4.1/drivers'
make: *** [_modinst_drivers] Error 2


file /lib/modules/2.4.1/kernel

/lib/modules/2.4.1/kernel: file: read failed (Is a directory).

e2fsck -n -v doesn't report anything unusual.

I may need to reinstall the system afterall.

I chechked what packages I have isnatlled and found some glibc
packages. Do they exist or just made for convenient upgrading?

dpkg -l '*glibc*'

I have/had a working version of 2.4.1 and saved the files/modules.
