Changed HOSTNAME, now have whole "host" of problems


Have box with Slackware 12.0 on hdb1.Changed my hostname and now the ext3/jdb module is the only one loading.At bootup I get "modprobe FATAL error cannot load /usr/lib/module/2.6.18.8.tex6.lgc/module.dep no such file or directory".My kernel is 2.6.21.5-smp.The 2.6.18.8.tex6.lgc kernel is the kernel of the os on hdb7.Admittedly,I'm a linux novice,but this has me completely confused.I have no clue.

I re-read this several times and see no obvious connection, so how about some more info...

Where/how did you change HOSTNAME?

What else did you do during the same time and session?

Since it appears to have crossed partitions, what does /etc/fstab look like and /etc/lilo.config?

Does the Slackware partition manage the bootloader or the os on another partition, and was it updated from either os about this time?

Changed /etc/HOSTNAME and /etc/hosts.Also ran netconfig after the problems began.Can't think of any other things I did although I must have screwed up something.fstab looks right.The bootloader (grub) is handled by the os on hdb7.It's possible that the os on hdb7 was updated in the same timeframe.I really don't remember,but menu.lst looks okay,as far as I can tell.

Is the other distro Ubuntu? If so there was a kernel update this past day. It is possible that Ubuntu's package manager updated grub and changed your menu.lst.
