Hello. My name is Eric. I am new to Linux and am having a problem recompiling the kernel on my Compaq Armada M300 laptop running RedHat V7.2. I am using GRUB. I followed the steps in the kernel howto, downloading the sources, make xconfig, etc. When I had finished make bzImage, I ran make modules, make install, and make modules_install. For some reason, when I rebooted to my new kernel, I got errors like modprobe: cannot locate char-something during the boot. I know this is some program with loadable modules, but I have no idea what caused it or how to fix it. Help!

Thanks,
Eric M.

PS: My old kernel was 2.4.7-10. What does the 7-10 mean, anyway?

you did a few steps in the wrong order thats why you get
the module errors on boot up

after you run

make bzImage

you then run

make modules

then...

make modules_install

then edit your grub config file

i dont know where the make install came from that you had posted

so just recompile your kernel

go to your kernel source and type

make clean
make bzImage
make modules
make modules_install
