i just recompiled my kernel 2.2.12-20 so i could optimize my system a little bit..
now when i load i get dozens of errors.. or rather warnings because i can still get in and have not had any problems...

now all the errors are depmod errors.. then it says there are unresolved symbols.. then it lists the module.o

did i miss a step having to do with modules when i recompiled my kernel.. i didn't do anything with modules.. can someone please tell me if i can fix it now that it is recompiled, or what i have to do when i recompile it again?

Didn't read the "Kernel HowTo did you? See http://howto.tucows.com/LDP/HOWTO/Kernel-HOWTO.html

If you compile a new kernel you do have to compile the modules also. Go to the kernel src directory and "make modules" followed by "make modules_install". Then reboot.
