Kernel build


Hi All

I have a problem. I have changed the tty.h file and built the kernel after that change. But while booting using the image I am not able to build modules which use the changes i have done in tty.h (ie) the modification i made is not reflected.
Is there any special step to build the kernel after modifying the source file.

Thanks in advance.

Which version of the kernel are you using?

What steps have you taken to build and install your kernel?

What distribution are you using and what source are you starting from (source provided by the distribution, kernel.org vanilla source, something else)?

Well all I can say is fix the errors that occur when compiling the module. Without the code and the errors your getting there is no way for anyone to know what is causing your errors....
