Angry Kernel compile problem on Debian


Hi
I've been bugged by this error for some time now so maybe one of you guys could help me out?

I've upgraded my kernel to 2.6.10 (from a 2.4.2) by recompiling it.
It compiles fine, but I get a depmod: QM_MODULES: Function not implemented error when I run make modules_install.
After searching around, I found something that said I needed module-init-tools, so I downloaded that and installed it (module-init-tools-3.1-pre5) successfully, but the error remains.
It's really bugging me now
Any ideas?

Did you uninstall the old modutils? Perhaps it's trying to use the old modprobe, insmod, etc. commands instead of the newer ones, try 'which modbrobe' and 'modprobe --version' to make sure you have the correct version.

The problem is that when you install debian, it isn't 2.6 ready yet. So you have to update some packages and install some new ones.

i sorted out the QM_MODULES problem by copying the latest depmod, lsmod etc across to /sbin, which seems to have solved the problem. I get a healthy result from make modules_install anyway

however, the nVidia nForce drivers are refusing to install. it just says Error: The kernel module was not created. when i do a sh on the .pkg.run file, and if i try and compile the source code i get loads of errors. i'm using gcc 3.4.3 (the correct version this time) and the nForce driver is the latest one released on 20th Oct.
Any ideas what would cause this?
