hmm looks like a problem with the modules, did you run a make modules ? just as a tip, i found rh9 a pain in the neck to recompile the kernel for.. in fat in the end I gave up on it.. tat was 2.4.20-8 to 2.6.0 stable.. but there were a lot of issues already..
OK, The main reason why i am tring to recomile the kernel is because i am using an IBM T40 laptop and i want to get the Centrino wireless card working. I know there was no support for it in Linux, but the drivers have now been released.
So i goto
Download the drivers.
I have tried to follow the instructions but I am not winning!
I want to add the drivers into the kernel and not load in the drivers/modules everytime linux boots.
I understand about the kernel tree, I have got 2.4 and 2.6 kernels.
I was going to try 2.4 first, so i follow the instructions and add the driver to the wireless path in the tree. I think I have to then run a patch to tell xconfig to add the new wireless driver.
But when i run the patch the pc just hangs.
So i try and modify the kernel without adding any new driver just to see if i can get that to work. Everything is fine until the make install.
