Modules and 2.1.X kernel

I tried to compile some part of my 2.1.9 kernel as modules but I get:
unresolved symoble in... (some sound modules and scsi modules)
Everything works if I compile in thos in the kernel using make bzimage.
I have upgraded to modutils 2.1.85 and I made a rm -rf /lib/modules/2.1.99

before make modules and make modules_install

How do I get the modules to work???

If you are re-compiling 2.1.99 (in other words, you have
an existing 2.1.99 kernel) then do the following:

cd /usr/src/linux
rm -rf /lib/modules/2.1.99
make dep
make clean
make modules
make modules_install
make zImage

mv /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/zImage /boot
  (replace /boot with wherever you generally keep your
   kernels)

vi /etc/lilo.conf (and make sure the first label is pointing
                   to /boot/zImage - make a duplicate label
                   which points to your current kernel, just
                   in case.)

/sbin/lilo
shutdown -r now

When it comes back up, you shouldn't get module
errors.

I did exactly as you said but it complains over sound.o anyway andit doesn't load my scsi modules,. I have to do modprobe -a /lib/modules/2.1.99/scsi/*

One more thing. When I compile the kernel with pnp support do I have to use isapnptools to get my soundcard to work???
How do I tell the kernel the irq and dma for my soundcard?

Thats strange - try "/sbin/depmod -a 2.1.99" (that should
create a file called modules.dep in /lib/modules/2.1.99)

In order to configure isapnp, run "isapnp > /etc/isapnp.conf"
(back up your old one first if one exists...)  Then just go
through and uncomment what applies to you, and comment out
what does not.  Then it should run automatically the next
time you boot (assuming its somewhere in your rc.*)

the modules.dep file already exist and contains the path to the modules. It doesn't load the printer module either...

isapnp > /etc/isapnp.conf gives me :

[root@tjo /root]# isapnp > /etc/isapnp.conf

Ooops.. I think its "pnpdump > /etc/isapnp.conf"
Then after fixing the file, run "isapnp" (it defaults
to /etc/isapnp.conf"

Sorry about that :>
