Why won't my modules load?
I compiled some modules on Debian, so that I can learn which modules are necessary to get a soundcard's midi ports working on a Knoppix liveCD. Therefore recompiling the kernel is not an option since the kernel can't be updated on a liveCD.
After downloading the source tree from kernel.org, I do "make menuconfig", "make dep", "make modules", and "make modules_install" and also "update-modules".
After rebooting, the modules under /lib/modules/2.4.26 are not loaded, so I must be missing a step? What do I do to tell Debian to load the modules? How does it know which directory under /lib/modules to load from?
