    Kernel build does not post modules


    Hi, since a few weeks I seem to unable to build modularized kernels. I am running Ubuntu 8.10 and use the current kernel source (linux-2.6.27.9.tar.bz2). When compiling the kernel I get this message after the 'make modules':

    Building modules, stage 2.
    MODPOST 0 modules

    so there are compiled modules which do not get installed with 'make modules_install'

    any help appreciated
    thanks

    update & reply to my own post:

    today I tried (dont know why) to do something different:

    sudo make bzImage && sudo make modules && sudo make modules_install

    this _worked_

    when I do a sudo -s and then compile I get MODPOST 0 modules as per my firts post

    this is very strange and I would like to hear an explanation...
