modules problems when update kernel
I have installed a debian from woody and it's working fine with kernel-2.4, but I need to tune it and then I want to upgrade to the kernel-2.6.
I've tried this in two ways and either of them was right.
By one hand, I've tried the simpliest way, that's is installing the kernel-image-2.6.10-1-686 and the corresponding dependencies (I think), but there are a lot of dispositives as the pcmcia network interface that doesn't work although I tried to install the correct module with modconf. Maybe I can't find since tulip_cb that is the one works on 2.4 it isn't in the list... ?¿
Then I tried to compile my own kernel, it's no my first time, but I experience problems whith modules.
Now in my system are the corresponding modules configuration files at /etc and in /lib/modules i have three directories:
drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 2005-03-24 18:48 2.4.18-bf2.4
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root root 17 2005-04-09 14:49 2.6.10 -> ./2.6.10-sources/
drwxr-xr-x 5 root root 4096 2005-04-09 14:43 2.6.10-1-686
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 2005-04-09 14:53 2.6.10-sources
When I start with my compiled kernel some modules are missing.
Is that for an error building my kernel? then, what i have to pay attention?
I have to do anything more to update the module tree ? Where or what is the file where the system knows witch directory have to search the modules ?
Please if you need any configuration files of my system tell me what and i will post on my server.
Thank you very much.
