Up untill 2.6.30 upgrades from the complied kernel,modules,src seemed to work fine.
I have tried all the latest 2.6.31's and have had problems.
To compile my own if found these notes in the forum(below), but unfortunately it does'nt seem to work.
I would appreciate a definitive "vector" kernel/modules howto compile explanation.
Ty in advance.
First there is a copy of the kernel config in /boot
Start with that and then modify as needed. Then
make && make modules && make modules_install
&& cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot && cp
System.Map /Boot/System.map-<kernel name>
Then edit /etc/lilo add the kernel, use lilo -v to
add the entry and reboot.
I am sure others go about this in another way. This
is the process that has always worked for me.
If you are using the current kernel make sure you
have the kernel sources (It appears you know that).
