I finally got around to updating my kernel to 2.6.20-gentoo-r5 today, but have
run into a snag. I did the usual 'make vmlinux && make modules_install' as
per the guide, copied vmlinux to /boot, edited yaboot.conf, ran 'ybin -v' and
rebooted. Everything seemed good until it started failing on load for
everything I built as a module. A little strange...
OK, so I have a look at my modules:
# ls /lib/modules/2.6.20-gentoo-r5/
build modules.alias modules.dep modules.inputmap modules.ofmap
kernel modules.ccwmap modules.ieee1394map modules.isapnpmap modules.pcimap
# ls /lib/modules/2.6.20-gentoo-r5/kernel
Waaahhh? There's nothing there?
I tried to install them again, thinking I messed up:
# make modules_install
if [ -r System.map -a -x /sbin/depmod ]; then /sbin/depmod -ae -F System.map
So where did my modules go? I can assure you all that I *configured* them:
# grep "=m" .config | head -n5
# grep "=m" .config | wc -l
Does anyone know what I've done wrong here? This is sort of bizarre. I re-read
the kernel's README, but 'make modules_install' is still valid. As I say,
kernel is 2.6.20-gentoo-r5 (gentoo-sources), machine is a Powermac G5, 64-bit
userland, what else do you need to know? Just ask...
Thanks for consideration,
