Lightbulb yaird error


Hi Everyone

I am running Debian Unstable 2.6.26-1-686 on VMWARE virtual machine on my laptop.

I am trying to compile new version of Linux Kernel 2.6.28.3 by following instructions from
http://www.howtoforge.com/kernel_com...debian_etch_p2

Everything goes well till the second last step.

When i reach the point to create a ramdisk with the following command:
mkinitrd.yaird -o /boot/initrd.img-2.6.28.3 2.6.28.3

I get the following error:
yaird error: can't open pci module list /lib/modules/2.6.28.3/modules.pcimap (fatal)

When i used to compile kernel with older version of Debian(i-e Etch or 4.0) i did not have this problem.

Any help in this regard is highly appreciated.

Best Regards

Have you had any luck using update-initramfs? I can't remember the last time I used yaird.

Hi

Thank you for your reply but i don't understand your question.

I have compiled Kernel so many times on Debian 4.0 or Etch but never had such a problem. This time i am compiling it on Debian 5.0 or Lenny and have this problem.


Any help is highly appreciated.

The question is: "have you tried using update-initramfs?"

i can make your life more calm and this is my solution:

(maybe this you need too # depmod your-kernel-assemble)
# update-initramfs -v -c -k 'your-kernel-assemble'
OR
# update-initramfs -v -c -k $(uname -r)

and it was safe my life

++++++++
good luck dudes
