add new modules to new compiled kernel?

add new modules to new compiled kernel?

add new modules to new compiled kernel?

(OP)
I have compiled kernel 2.6.34.7 64 bit on centos 6.5 succefully.But I didn't have enough disk space to install a ll modules and deleted some sound and wifi modules in /usr/src/linux-2.6.34.7/ during make modules_install.
I also deleted /usr/src/linux-2.6.34.7 and untar new linux-2.6.34.7.tar.bz2.But I didnt run make bzImage because I already created bzImage previously.
I used same .config file and ran make modules and make modules_install to add all modules.
It didn't work.
Any ideas to solve this problem?



RE: add new modules to new compiled kernel?

No idea, what exactly is the problem?

You didnt know it.Please don't answer it...:)
Thanks for your reply.

RE: add new modules to new compiled kernel?

What I am telling you is that "It didn't work" is NOT sufficient information to provide a clue as to the actual problem.

You providing better information will mean that you will get better answers. The ONLY answer that can be given to: "It didn't work" is ... "Then you did something wrong"!

I meant my sound module and wifi modules didnt work../lib/modules/2.6.34.7 size around 854 mb.

RE: add new modules to new compiled kernel?

Didn't 'work' or did not compile into the OS?

RE: add new modules to new compiled kernel?

After I have done make modules and make modules_install.
Many modules didn't load it automatically when my centos 6.5 64 bit started up.Because I have done overwrite existing modules.

RE: add new modules to new compiled kernel?

I don't think Linux is modular at that level, e.g. that binaries from different compiles can be mixed and expected to interact properly.

You could test that conjecture by getting yourself some more drive space and doing the compile and install as it was intended.
