Listmates,

I recovered my 10.3 system with the 11.2 install dvd. I booted the
installed system from the 11.2 disk and then re-installed grub. Now I get
the following modprobe error whenever I try to copy files from sdb -> sda:

Jan 3 02:06:53 nirvana modprobe: FATAL: Could not load
/lib/modules/2.6.31.5-0.1-default/modules.dep: No such file or directory

Sounds like the 11.2 recovery gave you an 11.2 kernel in /boot, with an
11.2 initrd, but didn't give you the 11.2 kernel rpm with the modules.

I suspect your 10.3 kernel is still under /boot though, and it may even
be available as a boot option already in /boot/grub/menu.lst, but if it
isn't, edit that file and make it point to the correct kernel file.

If the kernel isn't available under /boot, you may have to reinstall the
rpm, which should take care of menu.lst automatically

Anders,

You nailed this one -- again! Blows my mind:

What I don't understand is the only new file is the
initrd-2.6.22.19-0.4-default, which apparently is really 2.6.31.5, while all my
kernels are still 2.6.22.19 from the 8/14 kernel update. So it looks like I
only need to remake initrd-2.6.22.19-0.4-default. Do you concurr?

Also, strangely, everything is running find on 2.6.31 made for 11.2 on
my 10.3 system. How is that possible? Next, How did I get a 2.6.31 kernel by
reinstalling grub when the 11.2 dvd was simply used to boot the existing 10.3
system?

Something smells fishy here...
