PostPosted: Fri Apr 08, 2005 12:22 pm 
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.

cd /usr/src
wget -c ... .7.tar.bz2
tar xvfj linux-
cd linux-
make clean && make mrproper
make menuconfig
make bzImage
make modules
make modules_install

cp .config /boot/config-2.6.7
cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinuz-
cp /boot/
mkinitrd /boot/initrd-2.6.7.img

this is where i got an error saying "No dep file found for kernel"

i upgraded the mod init tools using this method. i did this before the kernel.

cd /usr/src
wget -c ... 3.0.tar.gz
tar -zxvf module-init-tools-3.0.tar.gz
cd module-init-tools-3.0
./configure --prefix=""
make moveold
make install
./generate-modprobe.conf /etc/modprobe.conf

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.
