General :: Missing Modules After Compiling New Kernel?

Aug 13, 2011

I'm having a problem getting firewire modules to load. Basically, I need firewire_core and firewire_ohci so I can use dvgrab. I tried the following:

[root@x:/]# modprobe firewire_core
[root@x:/]# modprobe firewire_ohci
But the modules aren't showing with lsmod:

General :: Compiling Kernel Sources Or Its Modules

Oct 25, 2010

It has been years since I have need to compile the kernel or its modules. Here goes: I recently upgraded to ubuntu 10.10 and needed the kernel source and its modules source. The relevant directories are in a mess. Several diff versions, broken links, the works. Is there a nice easy way, to remove all of the sources, there, and err "install" the ones for my latest kernel, in the correct places. Then I might have a chance at getting the two modules I need complied! Nvidia being one for the geforce 4 mx420 nv17

General :: Compiling New Kernel - List Of Current Modules

May 25, 2011

I'm trying to compile a kernel for my Crux Linux install. I figured I'd do a 'make defconfig' to setup a .config file with the default configuration and then try to add anything I will need for my specific system. I found a script that scans my system and prints out a list of any current modules I am using. That way I can make sure to add these to my new kernel. It looks something like this:


Is there a way to add these to my current configuration without having to go into 'make menuconfig' and search for each one? It's not too hard to search for many of them. But the ones with short names I'm not finding. Like ac.ko for example. 'ac.ko' returns 0 search results and 'ac' returns anything and everything with those 2 letters in it.

OpenSUSE Install :: Compiling Modules Against Kernel?

Feb 26, 2010

I am having some issues compiling kernel modules against the pre-built OpenSUSE kernel. Whenever I compile a module and try to load it, I get something like:

insmod fs/smbfs/smbfs.ko
insmod: error inserting 'fs/smbfs/smbfs.ko': -1 Invalid module format
It doesn't actually matter what the module is, they all do the same thing. I have tried the above mentioned smbfs, I've also tried:vmware kernel module

Slackware :: Missing Kernel-modules Package

Feb 11, 2011

I upgraded to the latest -current just like always. I do the kernel packages last. This time, the machine failed to boot, telling me that it could not find the kernel modules. Well, rats.

I booted with a slackware dvd, passed the huge.s kernel, and booted into /dev/sda7, which is my main partition. I mounted /dev/sda7, and installed the kernel-modules- pkg. Rebooted, and got the same error?

I booted again with the dvd, mounted the partition, and navigated to /lib/modules - no in there!

How do I get that package to install?

General :: Apache2 Compiled Modules Missing?

Jan 22, 2011

i couldn't find anything on google. So here is my problem: It's Debian GNU/Linux. I installed apache2 a few weeks ago, but due to some work I couldn't go on installing further things. Today I installed php5 and mysql. Everything seemed to work fine. I loaded an existing MyBB Board and WordPress Site onto the server and imported the mysql db. I can open the sites and login. However, there are problems. I think my problems are due to the compiled modules. Some are missing. I checked several sites. They all give me this listing:

apache2 -l
Compiled in modules:


What should I do? How can I get the missing modules? Do I have to install apache again (how? remove - install? install what?)? Step-by-step instructions would be kind, because I don't know a lot about unix systems.

General :: New Kernel Only Has Two Modules?

I have just compiled a new kernel. When I boot into this new kernel and do an lsmod it is only running two modules.

I am running Ubuntu 10.04. The new kernel is The kernel seems to work fine but I need to know why and how it can only be running two modules.

General :: Kernel 3.0-ARCH VMWare Modules Wont Build

Aug 4, 2011

Since new kernel 3.0 update I cannot rebuild vmware modules


sudo vmware-modconfig --console --install-all Unable to initialize kernel module configuration

how to do that. Where do I insert the "CONFIG_LOCALVERSION" line.


Same here. This seems to be due to the kernel version being "3.0" instead of "3.0.0". Recompiling the Kernel (and all modules based on it, e.g. nvidia) with
CONFIG_LOCALVERSION=".0-ARCH" allows me to compile the modules and run VMware.

General :: Loaded Kernel Modules On Virtual Server And CSF Confusion

Dec 24, 2010

what is happening on my Centos virtual server (ps I'm having a great time re-learning Linux after a large gap and usually try and find out myself but this has me confused) First thing I did was install Tomcat and try and change the port to 80 using iptables -nat and it complained a kernel module was missing. Instead setup Apache to redirect requests so that's now working I then tried to install CSF firewall and the validation perl script returned fatal errors so I assumed OK my virtual server Kernel is restricted and used denyhosts instead which is working great

Here's the confusion.. I later retried the csftest script and it now works including all the iptables and nat stuff that fataled before. I've not rebooted or changed anything except run denyhosts and the postgres daemon + ended a few daemons that I didn't need (eg pickup,tlsmgr,courier,postfix,qmgr,saslauthd) Running lsmod returns nothing and /proc/modules is zero bytes so I'm not able to tell what is loaded? I'm tempted to try and get Tomcat redirecting via iptables and see what happens but if it works I don't like that something seems to have changed.. before I ran it direct as root now I'm SU into root from another login

General :: How Much Size Should Give When Compiling And Installing A Kernel

Apr 13, 2010

I have downloaded the newest most stable Linux kernel,

I thought I would test this using VirtualBox. So I create a dynamically sized harddisk of 4 GB. And installed CentOS 5.3 with just the minimum packages.

I setup the make menuconfig with just the default settings.

After that I ran make and got the following error:

The amount of space I have left is:

My virtual size is 4 GB, but the actual size is 3.5 GB.

How much size should I give when compiling and installing a Linux kernel? Are there any guidelines to follow when doing this? This is my first time, so just experimenting with this.

I am compiling kernel to learn it and as well as for edubook, a netbook I am working on. I wanted to put the compilation under my home directory and followed the syntax suggested in the README in /usr/src/linux,like,


'make o=/home/pbhat/temp/kcompile menuconfig'

Like this I have gone through full compilation successfully,but see no output going to the specified folder.Could anybody point out where I went wrong? I was compiling under /usr/src/linux and in Opensuse 11.2.I followed the README apparently written by Linus where I saw the above make syntax.Maybe that is old and hold good no more.

Slackware :: Missing Panel Modules In XFCE4 - 13.37 ?

Jul 16, 2011

Upgraded from 13.1. Certain panel plugins seem to be gone in XFCE4.

When I try to add the Icon Box, Task List or several others to the panel, I get "Could not open 'iconbox' module".

There is an iconbox module in /usr/lib/xfce4/panel-plugins, along with some others, but they all date back to 3/29. In /usr/share/xfce4/panel-plugins, there is a mix of newer and older files.

Did the icon box go away? Do I need to nuke ~/.config/xfce4?

CentOS 5 :: Firewire 1394 Modules Missing?

Nov 5, 2009

I am relatively new to CentOS. I attempted to install 5.3 with firewire several weeks ago and abandoned the install because it was taking too long to figure out the problems. I've had to revisit this and am having troubles with it. I was told that CentOS 5 has firewire 1394 support. When I did the typical install, it didn't physically (manually) install the video1394 and raw1394 modules. At boot up, my computer says that video1394 and raw1394 are "Module(s) not found". If I do <lsmod> I get (*snippet of o/p),

Module Size Used by
lockd 63081 0
sunrpc 145405 2 lockd
dm_mirror 24393 0
dm_multipath 24909 0
scsi_dh 11713 1 dm_multipath


I have found several other posts on the web that indicate I have to get the latest source files, but I do not know which one is the correct one or where to find it. Can anyone ponit me in the right direction? Is there anything else that I need to do?

I've tried reinstalling php and it made no difference. php.ini is not to blame. I've Google'd this to death, no luck.
