I installed slackware 8.0 like two days ago.
i'm aware that the kernel is 2.2, so that i want to upgrade it to 2.4.18. I download the kernel from www.kernel.org
this is what i did:
cp linux/arch/i386/boot/ bzImage /vmlinuz-2.4.18
cp linux/System.map /boot/System.map
i am able to boot using the new kernel. the problem is all the modules is not detected. At first, i though that i should edit the etc/modules.conf.
alias net-pf-4 off
alias net-pf-5 off
But later on i realized that the module is loaded on the startup with the error msg " modules is not located.
Then i tried to lsmod. No modules showed up.
When i tried to modprobe all the modules... it says modules not located...
Now i'm confused because i still can boot up to my old kernel and everything works just fine+xwindow is up.
Pls help me to set up my new kernel....
