I followed the instructions for building a custom kernel and booting it. Everything works fine, except that when building it, I used the option skipmodule=true (as given in this link), so I guess the modules are not built for this kernel.

I'm saying this because after I installed the image (using dpkg -i), when I run ls -l in the /lib/modules/2.6.38-11-i5 folder, all the files/folders except the 'kernel' folder have got updated (Btw, I had built it last time and it had worked fine,this is an update on the same kernel source).

So is there some option/command that I missed that export the modules as well?

Okay. It works fine.

Actually, my module was getting exported to /lib when I installed the new kernel image. Guess the timestamp of the parent directory /lib/modules/2.6.38-11-i5/kernel doesn't get updated.
