My laptop is a Lenovo Thinkpad X61 (the convertible tablet version).

My kernel was created using the genkernel tool.

Code:
genkernel all


I seem to be having problems getting certain modules to load.

Urls listed are output from wgetpasting the log file of command$ >> command$.log

Here is lspci.
The salient points are on line 2 (display) and line 19 (wireless).

Here is lsmod.

It does not appear that the modules are being loaded.

/etc/conf.d/modules contains

Code:
modules="iwl4965"


but during the boot up process it says that it failed to load.

ifconfig does not list my wireless card, only eth0 which is my ethernet card.

if I run
Code:
find /lib/modules/3.6.11-gentoo/ type f -iname '*.o' -or -iname '*.ko'

then I can't seem to find thje relevant modules listed.

I am not sure what the relevant module for the intel gpu is, but I couldn't find anything that looked promising in the list.

bogamol,

Arr you sure it's compiled as a module :?:

Code:
grep CONFIG_IWL4965 /usr/src/linux/.config

Evidently it was not. that command returned 'not set'.


so how do I build it in? i thought it was automatically in for genkernel.

use genkernel --menuconfig all

Dispute its name, it does not taylor anything for you. It is truly a generic kernel.
