how to compile/install a kernel module?
I understand that you can install a single kernel module without having to recompile the kernel.
The fact is that I have manually compiled and installed kernel 22.214.171.124 on Slackware and I have forgotten to select a few modules which I need... I'm particulary interested in usb_storage to be able to download some photos off my digital camera.
Can I install a module without recompiling and reinstalling the whole kernel? Can somebody point me to a good tutorial/howto?
I tried googleing, searching the tutorials both on lq and on linux.org, and I looked at the documentation in the kernel source (which doesn't have very suggestive file names, at least for me), but I couldn't find a particular guide for this.
I considered it to be quite a newbie question, as I am quite new to kernel modules. If it is not, then please move it...
Thanks for reading. Any info/suggestion you have is welcomed.
