When I compile a new kernel, do I have to use make install. For
example I did this:
rm -rf /lib/modules/2.4.7-20custom (just be sure)
kept Makefiles EXTRAVERSION = -10custom
nohup make bzImage & (for monitoring)
cp /usr/src/linux-2.4.7-10/arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/bzImage.031403
Now, do I have to do this:
I did have modules in the new configuration, but I thought this was
handled above before this step.
I actually tried this step (make install), but get some error about
not installing a file system at 0x305 (close to that anyway; don't
have the error in front of me now).
I then modified grub according and rebooted.
Now, I have some files that are not read only, but are in a strange
filesystem that will not let me add data to text files because it is
full? (it doesn't know) and when I copied a file from say /etc/ to
/proc (where the kernel placed some of the files) I get "No such
device." But the files are there. One just can't do anything with
them. I do have adequate disk space.
Thank you for any guidance.
