Unhappy Kernel bootup error


I am running Fedora kernel At my job I was in charge for installing these A/D boards by Diamond Systems. For the most part it comes with a script that can load a module for 2.6.* kernel. In my attempt to load the script, the prompt never returned if it was loaded or not. I gave the system a reboot and now the wont load any drivers(pci cards etc), wont find eth1 and has basic usability.

I noticed that If i load another kernel 2.6.21-1.3194.fc7 everything seems to work. The problem is that most of the hardware is setup for the I tried download the source code for 2.6.21 but the rpm refuses to install the source code and headers.

My question is if there is any way I could reload the kernel with my old functionality. That kernel used to work properly untill i used those scripts for installing hardware. Now nothing seems to work under that kernel. I was wondering if anyone had any issue with something like this and if they could share some insight in what could of gone wrong.

Re: Kernel bootup error

The script must have messed up with driver dependency maps.

To re-generate the maps,
1. remove the offending driver(s) from /lib/modules/YOUR_KERNEL_VERSION/
2. depmod -a

First, you need to figure out what driver files were installed by the script.
