OK, so the full sequence would be :
mv 3w-9xxx.ko 3w-9xxx.dist
cp ~/src/driver-220.127.116.11/3w-9xxx.ko 3w-9xxx.18.104.22.168
cp 3w-9xxx.22.214.171.124 3w-9xxx.ko
mkinitrd initrd-2.6.9-11.ELsmp.img 2.6.9-11.ELsmp
(what on earth does depmod do, depmod --help prints a lot of nice stuff
but does't make any sense to me). Is it just to check all required modules
are there or is that the util used to specify which modules to (not) load.
How can I see which modules are currently in initrd?
