i have this very annoying problem, and am going crazy for spending hours of trial and error on this the last 2 days...
I had a debian 3.0rc2 woody install, did
to upgrade dist to sarge
Then downloaded kernel 2.6.5 source, meeting all software requirements, performed
apt-get install module-init-tools
cp arch/... blah to /boot, same for System.map and ln -s ...
But when i boot into the newly added kernel 2.6.5, no modules are loaded. When i perform a lsmod it just gives me the header with module name etc, but none is in there.
Also during boot errors are reported about eth1 being nonexistent device, same for the aliases for the terminals etc (therefore really pointing to the modprobe.conf/modconfig.conf as being the cause?)
I've found info on the net about the same problem combined with "QM_MODULES" not implemented, and this is solved by installing module-init-tools. But for those other persons installing that fixed their empty modules list, apparently for me it just fixed the error report but i still remain with the empty list...
Gonna try those later on tonight. Already upgraded to sid and then put kernel 2.6.4-1 into place and with that one is do have my modules loaded but still no network interface... gonna look up the error later
