Yes, I do it...and it works now.


But I think that is an fail in the way of making the new kernel. I think
that, when one user insert one driver into the kernel, the compilatiion
process must check modules that was loading before and remove it (from
/etc/modules) to avoid their loading when the user boots whith new
kernel.

What do you think about?


thanks.
