Description of problem:
trying to recompile the kernel results in wrong module dependcies for usb-mouse
---+ standardkernel:
   * lsmod:
      input                   5856   0  [keybdev mousedev hid]
   * modules.dep:
/lib/modules/2.4.20-9/kernel/drivers/usb/usbcore.o \
   * dmesg:
      hub.c: new USB device 00:1d.2-1, assigned address 2
      input0: USB HID v1.10 Mouse [A4Tech USB Optical Mouse] on usb2:2.0

---+ compiled kernel
   * lsmod:
      input                   5888   0  [keybdev mousedev]
   * modules.dep:
   * dmesg:
      hub.c: new USB device 00:1d.2-1, assigned address 2
      : USB HID v1.10 Mouse [A4Tech USB Optical Mouse] on usb2:2.0

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

2. boot it
3. see, thatr the usb-mouse fails

Actual Results:  mouse did not work

Expected Results:  mouse works

Additional info:

i just left all the options in the kernel - did not change anything
Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2003-04-23 06:14:23 EDT
are you sure? The configs included in the kernel-source are the exact files we
use for building the binary kernels.....
Comment 2 Jochen Witte 2003-04-23 06:20:58 EDT
i am sure, as far as i just tried this:
make mrproper
cp configs/kernel-2.4.20-i686.config .config
make dep && make bzImage && make modules && make modules_install

=> the resulting messgaes in dmesg, lsmod and modules.dep

i did not inspect further...
Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2003-04-23 06:24:17 EDT
cp configs/kernel-2.4.20-i686.config .config

after that step you must do a "make oldconfig" to basically transform the
.config file to the internal representation (eg the config.h header files etc etc)
Comment 4 Jochen Witte 2003-04-23 06:54:05 EDT
ain't this done with "make menuconfig" and then exit -> save chagnes ;) (forgot
to say this)
Comment 5 Jochen Witte 2003-04-23 07:36:43 EDT
after changing:




everything is fine

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
