    Modules aren't recognized :(


    I have recompiled my kernel(2.6.12.3). I made it where all the sound stuff became Modules because ALSA required it. Here's what I did: 1.Selected Modules for all sound stuff I needed. 2. Compiled it. 3. It shows CC [M] yadayada/snd.o (& the same for others). 4. Replace old Kernel image with new one. 5. restart computer 6. boot up Linux 4. type alsaconf and it says
    Code:
    Could not find module: snd
    . Yet I did compile the module. So why does it do this any help?

    Not sure about 2.6 (I used to do all my kernel compilation with 2.4) but a fairly essential step after make modules was make modules-install

    It installed them but they weren't recognized.
    Before I installed 2.6.12.3, I had 2.6.11.
    I think it is not searching the 2.6.12.3 directory in /lib/modules.
    So how do I get to actually look for the modules?

    had that with an older kernel... that turned to be modutils that needed updating, worth a search incase it's that again

    I got it to do it perfectly yesterday.

    I booted up my Gentoo CD and mounted 'n chrooted my root partition.
    I then cd to to the 2.6.12.3 kernel directory.
    Used Menuconfig
    typed:
    Code:
    make && make modules_install
    Copied the bzImage and .map to /boot.
    typed:
    Code:
    /sbin/lilo
    Rebooted

    It starts up and recognized the kernel version 2.6.12.3 instead of 2.6.11.
    The modules were all recognized!
