Then i choose saa7134 as module
when i say
make install it just screws up it . It cant find couple of directories and gives errors. I believe if i recompile it should be ok.
you don't need to do all that for 2.6.x.
make menuconfig, choose your options, then:
make && make modules_install
instead of make install, copy the kernel to your /boot directory manually after it's compiled:
cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.9
cp System.map /boot
(i *think* you need cp the system.map.
i do everytime anyway and it doesn't seem to hurt anything.)
then add the new kernel to lilo or grub, rerun lilo, and you should be good to go.
