I believe I followed the correct procedures in compiling new kernel in Debian but ... what the heck

if you don't need the modules listed here or they work anyway
this doesn't matter

you can: delete the old modules directory to get clean deps for new kernel when you compile

-this may go away by itself after some reboots

I believe I followed the correct procedures in compiling new kernel in Debian but ... what the heck
Looks to me like:

1. You've compiled in wireless LAN support but you maybe don't have a wireless LAN card.
2. Same for dialup modem perhaps.
3. You don't need tokenring frame support (you're not on an antique IBM tokenring network are you?)
4. DO you really need NFS?
5. And NAT (are you behind a router sharing an IP address?)
6. You've got iptables and ipchains. You don't need both.
7. Do you need the IPX protocol? (Used by Novell)
8. Do you have an infrared device?

hmm, I do have a dialup modem but the rest I don't really need. I need iptables not ipchains, i've done a lot of no-nos for one day .

I've actually copied the old config from /boot/ to /usr/src/linux/ to upgrade to a 2.4.20 kernel, so the old configs and other modules that I don't really need are still there. Thanks for clearing that out I'm not that brilliant on the hardware stuff I'm still working on the modules so I need a lot of reading.

Could be a problem in your kernel source tree. Try running "make mrproper" (like "make clean", only better), but make sure you back up your config file first.

sorry for the late reply, college work
anyways I got rid of the errors by your suggestions: "make mrproper" then I proceeded with the debian way of installing the kernel. Thanks
