2.6.6 compile problema
I just compiled my kernel and everything went fine, at least i can recompile. Simple question :

- Why does it complain at the end of the loading process that there is no
/lib/modules/2.6.6 modules.dep file or directory ? Actualy there isn't any just 2.4.22 ,what did i do wrong ? maybe a link would solve it ? what?

All you need to do is mkdir /lib/modules/2.6.6

That'll create your folder, then do a :

depmod -a

and wahay, no more silly errors !!!!!

Hope that's what you wanted, i think it is.


The 2.6.x series of kernels don't create this folder, you have to do it yourself,
once done however, no more errors. The folder should allways go in /lib/modules and should be called 2.6.6 or whatever kernel your running.

I assume it's because most people on 2.6 don't use modules anymore, i for example just compile everything i want in, and use it as is, no need for modules really.

forgot to say that i just followed shilo "this is how i did it all" wise steps (hopefully they`ll make a song out of it :-) in order to compile the kernel.

BTW if i want to change(compile) something again, i can just cd /usr/src/linuxxxxx and do make gconfig and change whatever i want and then, make , make modules , make modules install and it "will" change this kernel's configuration, right? sorryfor being so cautious and ignorant but i guess i wont hurt
BTW I am starting to become a true gnome fan. I noticed i runs much faster than before and it is more simple now, the only thing they've missed was to put kde on the menu like in slackware previous release

I just terminated my slackware install and after reading protoformix remarks :

"This is easy.... Frist what kinda soundcard do you have?

Don't touch your kernel if you built ALSA as modules all you need built in to the kernel is "soundcore.o"

i said , that's what happened!

So after installing, i can have it all configured*(almost) with 9.1,
just did "alsaconfig"
