i recompile the kernel to change from M686
now i get vermagic error when i load modules...
the EXTRAVERSION parameter in the Makefile
is correct infact modules are installed in the same old libary...
in the past this kernel was recopiled succesfully...
a sample of the error:
evdev: version magic "2.6.12-12mdk PENTIUMIII gcc-4.0" should be "2.6.12-12mdk 686 gcc-4.0"
as you know the name of the kernel is unchanged
2.6.12-12mdk but the machine name is PENTIUMIII instead of 686 ...
but this is what i have changed to my kernel ,because the machine is a PENTIUMIII intel celeron coppermine....
to be more precise.
here what happened
1) make bzImage ...runs fine.
2) i added the vmlinuz anf the system.map to boot
directory and update lilo
3)linux boots up fine
4)make modules runs fine
5)make modules_install runs fine..the module are installed in the right library...
6)at this point when i boot linux i get the error described in the first update.
what make me "crazy"..is that processor type is a kernel parameter...infact
kernel code compiled as modules reflect this...but the system still has 686
as machine type..
so kernel modules where already recompiled.
"uname -m" return 686 as machine type...
