    [SOLVED] make modules_install to a different path


    I am building the 2.6.32.24 kernel from kernel.org on a pc running:
    2.6.32-24-generic #43-Ubuntu SMP Thu Sep 16 14:58:24 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    Anyway, builds fine, does everything I want except when I make modules_install, I want it to install the modules to /media/Bot1/lib/modules/ (a CF card with ext3 partition), rather than the default /lib/modules.

    I have tried:

    make modules_install INSTALL_MOD_PATH=/media/Bot1/

    but this seems to move the Compact Flash drive mounted as /media/Bot1, to /media/Bot1_ and creates a new /media/Bot1 directory in which it installs the modules.

    What am I doing wrong? Thanks for the help!

    Not sure what I'm doing differently now (I'm intending to do the same thing) but its working. Just had the above happen the first time, go figure.
