dependency module k3.2.31
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 System.map 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!"I'm just a little old lady; don't try to dazzle me with jargon!"
