Slackware 10.2, 2.4.31 kernel recompile.
I'm following the typical procedure from slackbook.org for recompiling a 2.4.x kernel, which is to say specifically:
% su -
# cd /usr/src/linux
# make mrproper
# make menuconfig
# make dep
# make clean
# make bzImage
# make modules
# mv /boot/vmlinuz /boot/vmlinuz.old
# cat arch/i386/boot/bzImage > /vmlinuz
# mv /boot/System.map /boot/System.map.old
# cp System.map /boot/System.map
# make modules_install
...and then I reconfigure lilo.
After this, I reboot and get "FATAL: Module ... not found." messages telling me whatever process (insmod/modprobe I assume) can't locate the modules I compiled.
I didn't think they were there at all for a bit, since I'm gullible, but it looks like they actually showed up under
But when I go there and launch modprobe es1371.o (for example) it says:
FATAL: Module es1371.o not found.
...just like the message I got at startup. Even though the driver was *right there* .
Is that not the right format or something? I recall the precompiled drivers that 10.2 shipped with were gzipped. My modutils is up to date, and I double-checked all the minimum software version requirements in /usr/src/linux/Documentation/Changes and my system fit the bill, so what gives?
Thanks in advance...
