    depmod crashed during kernel compilation

    I had been compiling linux kernel (version 2.6.34) over Mandriva 2010(64-bit) (kernel version, run on VirtualBox 3.0.0 over Windows(32-bit). I am not sure this is because of the discrepancy of which of the above.

    make modules_install
    , the system crashed while executing the last command
    DEPMOD 2.6.34
    , when it creates the modules.dep. It seemed that few of the GNOME process have crashed. And consequently, on reboot the system fails while coming up (while loading the modules), just after boot.

    I tried running
    depmod -ae -F -v 2.6.34
    explicitly, but it was in vain, same thing happened.

    Please let me know if there is any solution to this or any other way for generation of modules.dep. Thanks in advance.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    I don't know how reliable running 64-bit systems on a VirtualBox VM with a 32-bit host would be. Personally, with a 32-bit Windows host I wouldn't even bother to take the time to try. Best bet? Run 64-bit Linux operation natively on host and run Windows in a 32-bit VM. That's what I do. I don't have any trouble running either or both 32-bit and 64-bit guest operating systems as a result.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
