    "Fatal" error when booting into custom kernel


    I've been working with the 2.6.32 kernel, specifically with writing custom system calls, but lately I've been getting an error when trying to boot to the kernel. It still boots, but I'd like to get rid of it.

    The error is as follows:

    modprobe: FATAL: Could not load /lib/modules/[mykernel]/modules.dep: No such file or directory.

    I should mention that I've been using a shell script to compile the kernel, so what I've been doing to compile it hasn't changed. And I've made sure that all the files you need to change that contain the system calls have been changed accurately. That being said, I can't exactly pinpoint when this error popped up so I'm not sure what the issue is.

    Thanks.

    And you've verified that this file is present? And in the correct location?

    Yes. It's in the proper directory.

    Have you made any software changes between then and now?
    Even something as simple as a system update?
