Okie dokie... I have Slack 10 (2.4.x) on two machines. On my machine at work, I compiled a 2.6.9 kernel for it today, and that went well, as far as I can tell. In fact, I was surprised that it worked because every other time I have tried to compile a kernel, I have given up, as I get a lot of errors and end up getting frustrated... Anyways, when I got home and tried to compile 2.6.9 for my home machine, everything goes well until I do a 'make modules_install'. I get this error:

root@hell:/usr/src/linux-2.6.9# make modules_install
ln: when making multiple links, last argument must be a directory
make: *** [_modinst_] Error 1

I looked around online for a while, after not having a damn clue what I was looking at, and didn't find anything. I also ran 'make -d modules_install' and here are the last few lines:

Considering target file `modules_install'.
File `modules_install' does not exist.

File `_modinst_' does not exist.

WTF am I looking at?!? As always, any assistance is GREATLY appreciated* ;D

PS- Just in case you are wondering, here is the link I used as a guide to the compilation (if you know any better ones, I would love to take a look):* http://www.digitalhermit.com/linux/K...ild-HOWTO.html
