1 Hi,
3 I had a system with only kernel 2.4.4-ac9 in place, which boots perfectly.
4 I did a new kernel build via "ebuild
5 ../sys-kernel/linux/linux- qmerge".
6 A new /lib/modules/2.4.5-ac5 directory was made. I added a new entry to
7 menu.lst to be able to boot the old kernel if the new one didn't worked.
8 Only all the *.dep files under /lib/modules/2.4.4-ac9 are being changed
9 with modules.dep being empty (0 bytes). So booting the older kernel gives
10 problems in loading
11 modules.
12 Also after booting kernel 2.4.5-ac5, the modules.* are automatic generated
13 but in the wrong
14 directory. They were created under 2.4.4-ac9 instead of 2.4.5-ac5.
15 Manually doing a depmod -a solved this behaviour.
16 Is there some reason for this behaviour or am i doing something wrong here ?
