     1= Troubleshooting Installation = 
     3== Modules Not Found == 
     5If after make installing, and doing modprobe ath_pci you get a “module not found” error, you may need to copy the modules to the correct location in {{{/lib/modules}}}. For example, if you are running a 2.6.11-1-686 kernel, you may need to copy the directory {{{/lib/modules/2.6.11/net}}} to {{{/lib/modules/2.6.11-1-686/net}}} and then run 
     7depmod -ae 
     9(This problem only occurs when you compile kernels the Debian way with {{{--append-to-version}}}.) 
     11== Make-Kpkg == 
     13Eric Van Buggenhaut sent me the following, on how to get make-kpkg to leave a built kernel tree in place after its made (and perhaps packaged) your kernel. 
     15If you are trying to build madwifi on an x86 Debian system (using kpkg), you may find that make fails, complaining that it can’t find modpost. 
     17After searching the web, I realized that the madwifi build wants to be able to find modpost in {{{/lib/modules/${VERSION}/build}}}, but the default kernel-package config runs a make clean in the kernel tree after the deb is built. To leave the built executables around, I modified {{{/etc/kernel-pkg.conf}}} to include the line: 
     19do_clean := No 
     21As described at 
     23I’m informed by Joe Milbourn, that you can also use {{{do_clean := !([Yy]es)}}}.
