Description of problem:
I upgraded to kernel-2.4.7-6 via up2date (along with source code).
I decided to build a custom kernel and install it. When I did, I noticed
that all modules were installed in /lib/modules/2.4.7-6custom.
After rebooting, I noticed that kernel though is still reporting a uname -r
of 2.4.7-6 and is trying to access the wrong modules.
I kinda like the idea of adding the custom to all source code so users will
not overwrite their known good kernel and modules. BUT for it to work, you
will also need to modify /usr/src/linux-2.4/include/linux/version.h to add
this keyword as well.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download source and compile
3. Reboot and watch module dependency failures.
The version.h is supposed to be rebuild automatically when you rebuild your
tree; I suspect a missing Makefile dependency, will check
Thanks for the report!
Ok fix works.
Thanks for reporting this!
