Hello,
By default, after a recent fresh install, I found that SMS boots with huge-smp kernel even if during installation procedure I've chosen the generic kernel. I tryed to switch manually to generic kernel so I properly edited the symlinks in /boot to point accordingly. I also run lilo, than reboot.
In return I got complaints(true) about files missig in /lib/modules/3.2.21. I remember about modules.dep but I can see there are some other extra files in /lib/modules/3.2.21-smp.

I can't find where am I mistaking....

Did you run a "depmod -a" usually that runs at first boot from rc.modules.
What complains are you getting?
Can you give me details to reproduce, e.g. SMS-1.6.6 choose kernel generic?

I have also depmod -a in my rc.firewall. Unfortunately my goal at that time was to migrate from a machine to another so I didn't stay to much. I've put a mark on this issue and I'll try to reproduce, as soon as i get back the sparring machine. I cleary remember the complaint about missing modules.dep in the /lib/modules/3.2.21 after reboot. I then booted from SMS live, chrooted to the drive and changed back the huge-smp kernel(simliks + lilo).

Now when we're talking I can see as following:

Code:

ls /lib/modules/3.2.21
build kernel modules.builtin modules.order source

ls /lib/modules/3.2.21-smp
build modules.alias modules.builtin modules.dep modules.devname modules.softdep modules.symbols.bin kernel modules.alias.bin modules.builtin.bin modules.dep.bin modules.order modules.symbols source


But I promise to come back soon with exact info. I just thought It's mabe an error in the kernel-generic package...

Don't waste your time just allow me 2-3 days and I'll present you the exact circumstances.

It seems all it needs it's a "depmod -a 3.2.21", I have set in latest kernels
"chroot . /sbin/depmod -a" to install script, so it doesn't happen again...

Also in setup.uuid ran depmod for all kernels and create a initrd.gz.

Hello back,

You was right.
After changing the symlinks, I did "depmode -a 3.2.21" and after a while /lib/modules/3.2.21 was (re)populated.

After reboot, everything run flawlessly.

Cheers.
