Question Upgrading to kernel 2.6.9 on Ubuntu


I have recently compiled the 2.6.9 kernel from source with no apparent problems.
Interestingly, upon boot I receive an error to the extent that modules can not be loaded on account of /lib/modules/2.6.9/modules.dep not being present.

The confusion begins by running a ls on the /lib/modules/2.6.9 directory which shows that modules.dep is indeed there.

Any guidence would be appreciated.

This will copy all newly made modules into subdirectories under
