Linux kernel recompile
This is more of an annoyance than a real problem, but everytime I recompile my kernel with a new feature or module and run
sudo make modules-install
it installs it fine, but removes all of my previous modules I have installed in /lib/modules (sound, video, net, etc). Is there a way to set it to overwrite modules it's currently installing and leave the other alone? Thanks!
User modules blown away
After checking the Makefile for "make modules_install", I see it by default,
blows away the /lib/modules/[version]/kernel folder and copies back the newly compiled stuff.
With my vmware install, it creates a folder /lib/modules/[version]/misc folder and sticks its modules in there. Try that ? (Don't forget to type depmod afterwards)
