kernel compile insanity...
Ok, maybe I'm just being stupid and forgetting something, but here's my situation..
I have a dual 600 xeon box w/ scsi drives ( adaptec controller )
I do a full install using the adaptec.s kernel image.
System boots fine.. *but*.. I see a couple of errors booting up like agpgart fails to load and aic79xx (scsi) fails to load... and I need smp anyways, so I perform these steps..
I remove agpgart support, and remove loadable module (M) support for aic79xx, and I add (*) for SMP support.
save and exit.
make dep && make clean bzImage modules modules_install
( which runs clean, does not error out )
cp /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinuz
Now I get 2 penguins ( framebuffer ), kernel panic, or on some occasions with a few different steps It will boot through but I start receiving TONS of insmod failed to load blahblah modules when I boot up. What am I doing wrong? I've done this succesfully before. I dont recall what I did differently.. I'm running slack 9.1 btw.
