    dependency module k3.2.31

    1. How to generate the dependency module ?

    make install is looking for /lib/modules/<k version>
    and also for the dependency module (modules.dep)
    Who generates them ?

    I generated the /lib/modules/<k version> by mkdir
    and tried to generate the dependency modules by:

    depmod -a -e -F 3.2.31

    depmod generated meaningless (in size) files in /lib/modules/<k

    there should be some automatic mechanism that does that
    README file of the kernel does not explain how to uninstall
    (make uninstall ? does not exist) after make install

    You install the modules from the kernel build directory by typing "make modules_install". Then run depmod.

    Uninstalling a kernel is easily done by hand. Just delete it from /boot and delete the modules directory /lib/modules/
    $KVER. But don't do it unless you know for certain that you can boot successfully to a replacement kernel!
