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/ No such file or directory
Jan 3 02:06:53 nirvana modprobe: FATAL: Could not load
/lib/modules/ No such file or directory

It seems like depmod got confused. But I don't know where the
information to search for modules.dep is stored. Have a look to see if
the kernel files in /boot are consistent. Try running depmod.

Ah! There is an "/etc/depmod.conf" file, look in there.

its been awhile since i've had to compile a kernel, but i had to for
some things and i've installed it with no real issue, the thing is that
I used the old initrd file for my boot loader. Therefore it didn't seem
to load the new modules. Makes sense i guess. Anyway, i'm on a ppc and
i have not found an easy way to create an initrd image. Does anyone
know of any down and dirty howto for this ?

Doesn't the "mkinitrd" script work there?
