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.

Ade

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

nevermind

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"
