I'm building a 3.2.x kernel on a RedHat Enterpise system.
During 'make install' it takes a very long time and is complaining:
ERROR: modinfo: could not find module xxx
I assume its probing existing modules but why? I created a small test module that I loaded by hand with insmod and sure enough it shows up as
ERROR: modinfo: could not find module testmodule.
Could someone explain to me what's going on here? Why does 'make install' care about existing modules that may (or may not) be loaded?
