ok i have blag10k installed. i want to upgrade the kernel from a 2.4 series to 2.6. the issue i have is the scsi drive. it is a dual xeon and i had to put 10k on it because fc2 based distros do not work. rather than upgrade the distro i want to keep blag10k but just update the kernel. the problem comes when trying to get it to boot. somewhere along the lines it goes wrong. here is what i did. so if anyone can tell me where i went wrong it would be great.
wget -c http://kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6 ... .7.tar.bz2
tar xvfj linux-220.127.116.11.tar.bz2
make clean && make mrproper
cp .config /boot/config-2.6.7
cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinuz-18.104.22.168
cp System.map /boot/System.map-22.214.171.124
mkinitrd /boot/initrd-2.6.7.img 126.96.36.199
this is where i got an error saying "No dep file found for kernel 188.8.131.52"
i upgraded the mod init tools using this method. i did this before the kernel.
wget -c http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/ ... 3.0.tar.gz
tar -zxvf module-init-tools-3.0.tar.gz
so does anyone know where this depmod issue is coming from? this is one of linux i didnt even know about. any help would be appreciated.
