Usually one just needed to do the following: make clean all install Now the way I got it to work (on CentOS 5.4) was: ./configure --prefix=/usr --mandir=/usr/share/man --infodir=/usr/share/info --with-km make clean all install depmod -a If I just do: ./configure --with-km Then the make install copies the files to /usr/local, although configure says: checking for /etc/gentoo-release... no checking for /etc/redhat-release... yes checking for /etc/slackware-version... no checking for /etc/debian_version... no checking for /etc/SuSErelease... no configure: configured for Red Hat (includes Fedora, RHEL, CentOS). What am I doing wrong or what is the adviced way to compile kernel module? Regards, Holger
