When you compiled your kernel, did you compile the stuff required as modules followed by 'make modules && make modules_install' ?

how did you install module-init-tools ? did you compile it manually or through apt-get? did you create a /etc/modprobe.conf ?

hi, ol

i compiled with "make modules modules_install"...with my choice of usb mouse is ok...for exemple

after, i compiled manually module-init-tool...;-) and i don't create etc/modprobe.conf because the command i had was not accepted : "./generate-modprobe.conf /etc/modprobe.conf"
kernel said: no such files...

i have a etc/modules.conf but not etc/modprobe...

Can you say me the good command?

Thanks for your replies

no... , this command is accept but show nothing...

"lsmod" show the summary only (size, name...)

"./generate-modprobe.conf /etc/modprobe.conf" kernel said: no such files...

"generate-modprobe.conf /etc/modprobe.conf" create etc/modeprobe.conf but the file say "can't find old version of modprobe.conf"
