I just recompiled my 2.0 kernel to customize it to my system. I decided to try
a couple of modules ppp and slip. After recompiling I did the usual make
depend; make clean; make zdisk(I use floppy to boot), make modules; make
modules_install and then I linked the module directory to current.
ln -s 2.0.0 current (2.0.0 is the kernel version)
I am using modules 2.0
I then rebooted and I got all kinds of errors about unresolved modules. I
figured this was because I didn't have a modules.conf file. I made a
modules.conf by doing something like modprobe -c > /etc/modules.conf.
I rebooted and again I got the same 20 lines of errors about unresolved
modules. I followed another person's suggestion to put in the word keep in
modules.conf. After rebooting I didn't get any errors about unresolved modules
but now I get a core file in my root directory when I leave the word keep in
there. If I take it out, I don't get a core file. If I move keep to the middle
of modules.conf the unresolved symbol error messages come back but I don't get
a core file.
What am I doing wrong? Does this have anything to do with rc.modules? Where
can I find info on keep?
