    Default Error compiling new kernel for 11.1

    Hi there,

    I have upgraded my kernel source to 2.6.27-29 and am having some problems. After running make modules_install, only 6 modules are built. This is resulting in failed dependency messages when I run make install.

    For example,

    FATAL: Module processor not found.
    WARNING: no dependencies for kernel module 'processor' found.
    As a result, the new kernel either does not boot at all, or is missing functionality.

    The sequence of commands I am using are

    make clean
    make mrproper
    make oldconfig
    make modules_install
    make install
    I can successfully compile the kernel sources for 2.6.27-7, which is the 11.1 default. The modules compilation phase also takes much longer, which is what I would expect.

    Any help would be appreciated,

    Why not update the kernel itself as well?
