revert to old kernel gives modules problem
Although it was a Suse distro I was trying out as a relative newbie, I post here as I might try another and it does relate to a compile. :-)
I went through the 'make menuconfig', 'make', 'make modules_install install' and it all finished nicely. I saw the new was in /boot along with the old vmlinuz.
I rebooted and things ran fine. As it was an overall testing thing I thought to redo Grub to go back to original default kernel, so made the changes renaming the files in /boot.
On reboot the message screen complained about the modules being wrong.
Only by returning to using the newly compiled kernel would the boot be ok.
The question is, shouldn't it be possible to revert to previous kernel and what did I miss out to cause the modules error?
