Default make module-install bug ?


It seems that make module-install uses the include files in /usr/src/linux, but it uses installs to the running kernel's module tree and not the one one generated by a make modules-install run in /usr/src/linux.
This means that if you are compiling a kernel under a 2.6.10 you have to reboot twice : first to switch to kernel (X will fail as loading module nvidia will fail) then make module-install for the nvidia module, then reboot.

I am wrong ? This bug can easily be fixed by retrieving the full name of the built kernel from the .config :
eval $(grep CONFIG_LOCALVERSION .config)
KERNEL_VERSION=$(grep "Linux kernel version" .config | sed "s/# Linux kernel version: //")
