    2.6.0-test4 kernel and modules


    I built the latest test 2.6 kernel and it's not loading the modules properly. During the boot it gives a series of modprobe: can't locate module whatever. I used the proper module names in the modules.autoload, and I tried modprobing a couple and got nothing. I know it's still not done yet, but that can't be normal. Anyone try any 2.6 kernels yet?

    Did you download and install module-init-tools? The 2.6 kernels have a completely rewritten module interface code, so the old modutils won't work with it.

    i had the same problem with 2.6.0-test4, just do like this:

    compile new kernel
    emerge module-init-tools (i guessed you use gentoo )
    update-modules

    that should fix it
