Missing modules when installing new kernel
first of Iīm kind of new to Linux. A couple of days ago I installed Debian version 2.2.20 and that seemed to workout just fine, except that my nvidia geforce4 wasnīt supported. Then I tried to update the nvidia drivers from download.nvidia.com. But when I ran that "sh NVIDIA-Linux..." to install the driver I got some error messages that it couldnīt find its way to the kernel-source (something wrong with the treestructure or something...).
However, I decided to update the kernel to 2.6.10 and I followed the instructions on desktop-linux.net/debkernel. After doing that I could install the nvidia drive and enter the desktop environment. But the problem is that I miss alot of modules that I had in 2.2.20. Among them the net module so my 3Com ethernet card donīt have any drives to make it work. Now I wonder why that is? I did the "make menuconfig" and told it to add network drivers. I donīt get it.
Iīve tried installing a new kernel with an image, but with the same result.
Is there any way I can move the modules in /lib/modules/2.2.20 to /lib/modules/2.6.10?
Donīt know if this is beginners mistake, if Iīve done something wrong from the start when installing debian with kernel 2.2.20 (it was a net install). However, if anyone can help me I would be very thankful!
