Wrong /lib/modules


So I just installed Slackware 11. Installed seemed great. Some small adjustments to make (X related) but otherwise seemed to go well.

However, I used the huge26.s kernel which is a 2.6.17.13 kernel build. In /lib/modules/ there is a dir 2.4.33.3. That's obviously an issue when loading modules like say, my network adapter!!! hehe.

Anyadvise for a nice easy way to get the correct contents there?

Thanks

Hi


ftp://slackware.cs.utah.edu/pub/slac.../RELEASE_NOTES

[HTML]Also, the kernel module packages for 2.6.x are not part of the
standard installation, so if you install using huge26.s or test26.s
kernel you'll have to install the corresponding kernel-modules package
when you're done. They can be found under /extra/linux-2.6.17.13/ (or
ISO number two under /extra/linux-2.6.17.13), or
/testing/packages/linux-2.6.18/[/HTML]
