Hi Richard,

Just to clarify:
does it means that I have to (or I can) recompile my kernel from my

Is it not possible from i386 linux box and the cross compiler?

Thanks again for support,

If I understand correctly, you are rebuilding the kernel, and want
kernel modules installed correctly under /lib/modules?

cd /usr/src/linux   (or wherever your source tree is)
# save your .config file, if you want it
make distclean
cp <config file> .config
make oldconfig
make dep
make modules
make modules_install
cp vmlinux /boot/vmlinux   (or whereever you want it to go)
