kernel 2.6.1 module compilation problems


ok, I have a problem with kernel 2.6.1. I run make menuconfig, edit the options, save, then make bzImage. It all runs fine. I place the newly created bzImage and System.map into /boot, then go back and do make modules then make modules_install. Make modules is working fine, no errors. But make modules_install does not. When it runs 'depmod -a' a lot of failed dependencies show up. I though i forgot to include some essential modules, but no, that was't the problem. Below is an excerpt of the output of make modules_install. Sorry for the size of the text.

I mention that I have searched all over the net for someone who had the same problem, but I couldn't find anything. I guess I am doing something wrong, but I don't know what. Could anyone enlighten me, please?

Have you installed the new module tools package ? 2.6.x series kernels are different in where the modules.conf file is placed/named, I had big problems until I installed the new package.

It was my fault after all. The answer was in front of me. module-init-tools. Now make modules_install works properly.
