Re: adding modules to kernel

I compile and install the kernel using the debian package process

module to the kernel and reboot, e.g. i2c_isa
However if I run the steps above, it takes another 20 minutes. Is
there a shorter way of doing it?
I tried doing it without the make-kpkg clean step, but it didn't
create the module, or didn't install it in the right directory or
Do I have to do all 4 steps every time, or is there a quick way of
adding extra modules?
If the module is already built and you just have to (un)load it, then
you can use 'modconf' program.
sudo apt-get install modconf
