Kernel recompile problem


I'm trying to recompile my Mandrake Kernel to install SCSI support for my digital camera. Having done:

make xconfig

make dep && make clean

make bzImage and

make module

When I come to:

make modules_install

I keep getting an error:

make *** [_make modinst_post] Error 1

Which comes after the commands:

find kernel -path '*/pcmcia/*' -name '*.o' | xargs -i -r ln -sf ../{} pcmcia

if [-r System.map]; then /sbin/depmod -ae -F System.map 2.4.8-26mdk

depmod ***unresolved symbols blah blah
and lots more depmods

Also, the walkthrough I'm following says once you've done:

make modules

do

cd /usr/lib/modules

and tar up the old modules; however, I don't have a /usr/lib/modules directory!

This is a first time compile here and I don't really know what I'm doing! I'm guessing it's something to do with pcmcia modules, but as far as I can see, I've disabled everything to do with pcmcia in the xconfig!

Cheers,

Rob.

Are you doing this to the mandrake kernel source that was install from the cd or a new kernel tarball you downloaded?

No can do! Mandrake will no longer read CDs and the network is now a notwork on it, so there seems to be no way of getting data on and off. I think I'm just going to reinstall, I've wasted more than enough time on this now. :-(

Thanks anyway.

Rob.
