Re: Kernel compilation
Unless I am in serious error, if uname -a gives you Kernel Linux 2.0.29,
it really means you still are running that kernel. What I usually do now, (i
dont' wipe out the headers anymore) is the standard make mrproper, make
menuconfig, make dep, make clean, make zImage, make modules, make
modules_install. Modify my /etc/lilo.conf, run lilo. Do an update on
bootsect.lnx since I am quadbooting. Then... this is new to me, since I am used
to slackware and modifying rc.d/rc.modules..... I copied the zImage to /vmlinuz
(probably better off copying zImage to /boot/vmlinuz-2.0.33 then remaking the
symlink in the "/") I rebooted, made sure I was running the new kernel via
Then.... instead of modifying /etc/rc.d/rc.modules (slackware), I realized
Debian has this cool "modconf" which lets you "add modules".... you add them all
in. It saves them into the /etc/modules and you reboot, and it should have
everything working 100%.
I did miss the earlier part of this thread, so sorry if this info is not helpful
