Couple questions about kernel 2.6.x modules
I am currently using Suse 8.2 Pro, but I compiled 2.6.4 kernel on it.I' ve upgraded module-init-tools
to 0.9.14.Still, when I boot this kernel I see in /var/log/messages this line:
No module symbols loaded - kernel modules not enabled.
I made initrd image in /boot directory as I should, and correct me if I am wrong, I have a problem
with mkinitrd (my guess: old version).Anyway, I've downloaded mkinitrd-1.0-80.src.rpm and when I tried to install
it ( rebuild first !) I got output that it conflicts with aaa_base scripts, currently I got
aaa_base-2003.3.18-0.So what should I do?Remove old aaa_base and install new one (which version for 2.6.4. kernel?),
and then install appropriate mkinitrd, or just new aaa_base, or just new mkinitrd (again, which version for 2.6.x kernel?).
And another thing concerns me.When I try to load module in command line, it fails with insmod and works with modprobe.
What is wrong?
I made a lot of assumptions in this topic, please tell me what I am doing wrong.
Really don't know what do.If anybody has some older version of
Suse with successfully compiled 2.6.x kernel, please write what you upgraded to get your Suse working fine with new kernel.
Thanks in advance!
P.S Could anybody show me useful links for downloading apropriate aaa_base and mkinitrd?

If you look at the end of the message it gives you the answer you did not enable Modules in the kernel.
