    Hi again,

    Todays questions are.. modules and kernel compiling!

    Firstly I run lsmod, after having done a complete total install of FC2 and see Bluetooth module loaded. Fine, I do not want/need that, so that will be the test module, so I use rmmod to remove it. After its dependencies have been removed, it goes! YAY

    However I reboot and it appears again, so I look in my book and it says the conf for the modules are either /etc/modules.conf, which does not exist, or /etc/modprobe.conf, which does exist but contains only my network card and SCSI card modules. Where are all the other modules held?!

    Secondly, the kernel! I do what it says in the book, create a symlink called /usr/src/linux to /usr/src/linux-<kernel version>, run make mrproper, run either make menuconfig or gmenuconfig etc, and I pick my options. In my case all I did was remove sound modules and a few other pieces, nothing critical. I then run the make command (cannot remember it off hand), and am left with a bzImage file, which I copy along with to the /boot directory, edit grub and then go back to the src directory and run make modules_install. I then reboot and it almost instantly causes a kernel panic!! I think I am missing a minute detail which the book is missing, so could a FC2 expert please fill me in on the exact steps to recompile the kernel so I can see where I am going wrong.

    hmm cant say ive ever tried it on anything other than gentoo unfortunatly mate

    and thats a simple case of
    make menuconfig

    make && make modules_install

    cp arch/x86/boot/bzImage /boot/kernel-2.6.X-gentoo-rX
    cp /boot/
    cp .config /boot/config-2.6.X-gentoo-rX
