8 It didn't change that I know of, but one can never tell. I suppose step
9 1 is to check what changed. So, either:
11 run make oldconfig
12 or
13 run make menuconfig and rapidly flip through all the screens looking for
14 entries that end with [NEW]
16 If that doesn't sort stuff out, then you will probably have to inspect
17 the area where you have missing modules more closely and read the help
18 pages. What are these missing modules? Often it's a case of a
19 replacement has a different name, like the b43legacy for Broadcom
20 wireless now has an entirely new b43 intended to replace b43legacy
