kernel: No module symbols loaded - kernel modules not enabled.
 
After 17 custom kernels... in the last week...

I finally got my 2.6 kernel to boot up in my Debian Sarge >.<

now my kernel refuses to load the modules.

WHY? :(

Kernel Log:

did you update your modutils and such.

You may need to install module-init-tools from testing or unstable (this is what I had to do to get my 2.6.5 kernel to boot). This "replaces" the modutils for the newer kernels.

Just a thought.

Already had them installed.

Just to let you know that I too am having the same problem (I spoke too soon in an earlier post :-(...). I've been putting together a new system (when I have time) and "thought" I had 2.6.5 working.

I too have the same error... "No module symbols loaded - kernel modules not enabled." I've been working in 2.6.5 but it is unstable. I compiled "everything" in the kernel, but there are still modules in /lib/modules for 2.6.5 and they are not loaded (hence the instability!).

This was a clean fresh install of Woody 2.4.18 and then dist-upgrade to sid. I installed module-init-tools and kernel-package. What's funny is that I have an old box that has been through a number of upgrades and it is running 2.6.3 rock solid!! So I don't know if I "missed" something or???

If I find out anything, I'll repost! (Googling for the problem yields many with the same issue!!!)

:newbie:

Newbie BIG times...

That message means nothign pretty much, but a good newbie trap :P

I just found a commant that slaped my newbiness in my face.

~# lsmod

Even though we get that message from the kernel.. modules DO load !!!!

This seeems to be a 2.6 kernel 'new' feature. LOL... kernels 2.4 would not print such message. :rolleyes:

Watch Out
 
Some modules I compiled into the kernel, but they don't load.

Where is the config file that keeps the module symbols?

do you mean you compiled drivers into the kernel, and didn't build them as modules? i think thats what you mean. you wouldn't load them. they would be running all the time. they would no longer show up under lsmod either, cause they're not modules anymore.
