I have two systems, one an upgrade from Debian 2.x, now at kernel 2.2, the other a new setup from 3.0 CDs.
The new one is missing nfs support, and so I wanted to add a module for this in /etc/modules, but when I look in /var/lib/modules/.../fs/ nfs.o and nfsd.o are not there. In general my older system has Lots more loadable modules.
Anyway, where can I get these modules, Debian ssays they are a part of the kernel package, but.... ??
I'm not sure, (i have redhat 9), but i think you would have to recompile your kernel to include module support for the nfs file system. Search for how to recompile the kernel on this forum, there are tons of posts (i think). Good luck
I'm having a similar problem in 3.0r2. (I installed this fresh an hour or so ago) my modconf only has a small selection of modules available, and many of the more (or so i would think) valuable ones are gone from the 3.0r1 install I did in july while evaluating different distros. in particular, mine doesn't have an option to install the usb-uhci modules that would allow me to use my one and only mouse, a usb optical. (the system is an old p1 with an AT mobo, and i'm fresh out of serial-mice) If anyone knows if debian took these out or if this was an install glitch, plz let us know.
no, i'm running 2.2.18-1-ide_pci i think. I suspect that when I did that 3.0r1 install this summer that i booted into the 2.4 kernel install mode. I just tried to update kernels (apt-cache search kernel then apt-get install linux-kernel-2.4.1__-bf something or another) and didn't append everything appropriately. I think i'm going to just re-install and boot with whatever disk installs the bf 2.4 kernel.
