A few hours ago I posted below about not being able to get my ETH0 interface to work. (See "eth0 (and modules?) missing" thread below.) I've found what I believe to be the issue behind it... Nothing seems to know what version of the Kernel i'm using! I told the install to use the bare.i image, which should have loaded (as far as I know) the 2.4.31 kernel. I have nothing special... IDE HD, 7Gb, ReiserFS. During boot I get this several times:
modprobe: Can't open dependencies file /lib/modules/2.4.29/modules.dep (No such file or directory)
Indeed, the entire /lib/modules/2.4.29 directory doesnt exist... only /lib/modules/2.4.31.
The login prompt also states
Welcome to Linux 2.4.29 (tty1)
I also tried installing the 2.6.13 kernel by using installpkg on the generic and modules files, mkinitrd, and telling lilo to use /boot/vmlinuz-generic-2.6.13 and initrd = /boot/initrd.gz, reloaded lilo and restarted. Linux still says I'm using the 2.4.29 kernel.
I'm sure I've missed some stupidly obvious step somewhere, but for the LIFE of me I can't figure it out. Every other linux installation I've ever done I've (basically) just been able to hit enter all the way through it and everything's worked. Even with SW 10.1. Any help will be greatly appreciated... thanks!
