Re: [PLUG] HELP: Handling kernel modules

you go thru all this and, just watch, the 2.4 kernel rpm will probably come out next week ;)

Hi all:

I've had some feedback from some of you re upgrading my RH7 system to
kernel 2.4.3, which is now done semi successfully.   The only thing I'm
struggling with, is getting most of the kernel modules to work!  I've
ended up recompiling most of the modules back into the kernel for stuff
to work.

When I upgraded RH from 6.2 to 7, everything seemed to work fine.   RH
usually uses a lot of modules in it's stock kernels.

When I compile a kernel to include modules, RH has a hard time finding /
loading the modules.
I think it has something to do with a lack of understanding how kmod,
depmod, modprobe, /etc/modules.conf work together.
