modules after kernel make - can't get new kernel finding its modules
More explicit version of earlier request. I installed 2.4.18-bf2.4
kernel from CDROM and then completed installation onto machine from
net. I want to compile the RAID code into the kernel so I can boot
from a mirrored disc array. I download kernel-source2.4.18. I do:
I get deb /usr/src/kernel-image-2.4.18_custom.1.0_i386.deb
dkpg -i kerne ... .deb
I set up lilo and boot into it: see the RAID code operating, see the
lilo label of the new image stanza, get error messages (not in dmesg
so I'm hazy about the exact wording) saying modules aren't found, no
network, ... log in from console, lsmod shows no modules,
/lib/modules/2.4.18 seems to have much less in it than
What _am_ I doing wrong? I could go ahead and ignore presence of
second hard disc and give up on RAID mirorring as it's belt and
braces, but I can't believe that it's not pretty easy to reconfigure
a new kernel and modules ... just dammed if I can see what I'm doing
wrong and reading round very documents (many from the 2.0.x kernel
days by look of things) and man pages is leaving me none the wiser.
Sorry if this is really, really stupid but I'd love to crack it.
