Hang during boot at "Finding Module Dependencies"

Hang during boot at "Finding Module Dependencies"

Post by M Hogstro » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00

I regenned my kernel and now whenever I boot the system it hangs with the
message "Finding Module Dependencies"

I can Ctrl-C out of it and it will boot up and run.  Any idea of how to
isolate the problem?


Hang during boot at "Finding Module Dependencies"

Post by Timothy Sulliv » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00

I'm having the same problem.  I'm currently using the updated 2.2.5-22
kernel from Redhat since 2.2.5-15 hung on my SCSI CD-RW.  After
getting everything running I decided to keep the 2.2.5-22 compiled
kernel around with modules for saftey.  I then went into the kernel
source and edited <version.h> from "-22" to "-23".  I also made the
necessary changes to the Makefile so the modules now are installed
under /lib/modules/modules-2.2.5-23 .

After compiling the kernel and modules and run modules_install I
placed the new kernel  under /boot/vmlinuz-2.2.5-23 and created a
corresponding inetd image file.  I also put  the new System.map file
into /boot/System.map-2.2.5-23 and made the necessary changes to lilo.

On rebooting the kernel starts up properly but the system hangs with
"Finding module dependencies".  Rebooting to the 2.2.5-22 kernel and
running "depmod -a 2.2.5-23" genereates a list of symbolic link

What am I doing wrong?  I've looked through /etc/rc.d and found the
"Finding modules dependencies" script code but could not find any
errors.  Has anyone tried this and solved the problem.

I too have this problem. I use kernel 2.2.12 (recompiled with as many
modules as possible) on Red Hat 6.0 (orig. kernel was 2.2.5-15). I inserted
the kerneld code in /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit, followed by the depmod -a command
and at start-up it says: "cannot open /lib/modules/2.2.12/modules.dep
though this file exists. Running depmod -a from the prompt results in a
long list of error messages.

Please help us.

1. Boot hangs at "Finding Module Dependencies" Help...

I recompiled my kernel over the weekend.  Everything went fine until I
tried to boot the kernel.  About halfway through the process the
message "Finding Module Dependencies" appears in the list and the boot

I then have to reboot using my old kernel.

The steps I followed:

make menuconfig
make dep
make clean
make bzImage
make module
make module_install

I copied bzImage to /boot and pointed lilo to the new kernel.  I then
ran lilo and rebooted.

What have I done wrong?
