After compiling and installing kernel everything works nicely, but theres no modules loaded, what happens is when i log in as non root theres no module loaded, but then i go for instance iptables -L then that modules are loaded,
however im concerned about rc.modules, after installed custom kernel theres no rc.modules-22.214.171.124?
so my question is how do i load all modules in my customized kernel?
Well, I think that there should't be rc.modules created for your custom kernel. If you have installed Slack with test26 or huge26 kernel, then you should only link rc.modules with those kernel rc.modules. I.E.
# Priority is given first to a script named "rc.modules.local", then
# to "rc.modules-$FULL_KERNEL_VERSION", and finally to the plain "rc.modules".
# Note that if /etc/rc.d/rc.modules.local is found, then that will be the ONLY
# rc.modules script the machine will run, so make sure it has everything in
# it that you need.
Since rc.modules is called from rc.S, take a look in /etc/rc.d to see if you have an empty or wrong rc.modules.local.
@general failure very interesting link hopefully will help me.
ill play today with it.
rc.modules, is symlinked to other rc.modules-uname-r, the problem is that after custom installation rc.modules-126.96.36.199 wasnt created at all, thats why i asked if i need to create manually rc.modules-188.8.131.52, wich seems so!
Ill play with it today and will report after i finish,
