can some one give me some advice in a generic fashion on loading modules into an existing kernel.
as I understand, if load module is enabled in the kernel config, then you can load modules using modprobe <module_name> without recompiling the kernel. modprobe is supposed to look inside /lib/modules/'uname -r' to find all the modules it canload.
my question is when do the modules in /lib/modules/'uname -r' get modified to incorporate the new modules? They are not affected when I re-ran make modules and make modules_install. if new modules are not added in them, it explains why I am not getting the modules I am expecting from doing make modules.
can some one please enlighten me on this?
