    Hi,

    I have installed slackware 12.1 on vmware server 1.0.1 with win xp. After that i did new kernel 2.6.24.5 compiling for vmware device drivers.

    Here is my configs,

    make mrproper
    make menuconfig
    make -j3 bzImage
    make -j3 modules
    make modules_install
    cp System.map /boot/System.mapnew
    cp .config /boot/confignew
    cp /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinuznew
    mv /boot/vmlinuz /boot/vmlinuz-old


    /etc/lilo.conf
    vga=normal
    lba32
    compact

    image = /boot/vmlinuznew
    root = /dev/sda2
    label = linux_2618
    read-only

    image = /boot/vmlinuz-old
    root = /dev/sda2
    label = linux_2433
    read-only

    /sbin/lilo -v

    cd /boot
    rm System.map
    rm config
    rm vmlinuz

    Here is the list of lspci command:

    00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation 440BX/ZX/DX - 82443BX/ZX/DX Host bridge (rev 01)
    00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation 440BX/ZX/DX - 82443BX/ZX/DX AGP bridge (rev 01)
    00:07.0 ISA bridge: Intel Corporation 82371AB/EB/MB PIIX4 ISA (rev 0
    00:07.1 IDE interface: Intel Corporation 82371AB/EB/MB PIIX4 IDE (rev 01)
    00:07.3 Bridge: Intel Corporation 82371AB/EB/MB PIIX4 ACPI (rev 0
    00:0f.0 VGA compatible controller: VMware Inc Abstract SVGA II Adapter
    00:10.0 SCSI storage controller: BusLogic BT-946C (BA80C30) [MultiMaster 10] (rev 01)
    00:11.0 Ethernet controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] 79c970 [PCnet32 LANCE] (rev 10)

    I have enabled
    Device Drivers -> Network Device Support -> Ethernet (10 or 100 ) -> AMD (PCnet32 lance)

    But problem is there is no modules lists on lsmod command

    Please help me

    regards

    Did you maybe compile the modules into the kernel statically?

    Can you post your kernel configuration file from the /boot directory?
