boot probs after compile


Hi

I have recompiled my kernel to 2.6.8 and have previously tried 2.6.11
Every time i try after the recompile and everything i get this error as i try boot into the new kernel

FATAL: could not load /lib/modules/2.6.8/modules.deb No such file or
directory

why is this and how can i fix it?

really need a new kernel as i am running debian on my laptop and need ACPI among other things

Thanks

Graham

Did you make modules && make modules_install ?

Cheers,

Hi

Yeah i did

I also created the initrd using the following command
Code:
mkinitrd -o /boot/initrd-2.6.8
hope that was right but i read the man pages and that is what i figured it to be


thanks
