I have now upgraded modutils to the latest version (2.4.26)

when trying to install the kernel modules using:

make O=/u1/build/kernel modules_install

The build still fails when trying to create modules.dep:

if [ -r ]; then /sbin/depmod -ae -F -b
-r 2.6.0; fi
depmod: Can't open /u1/build/kmodules/lib/modules/2.6.0/modules.dep
for writing
make[1]: *** [_modinst_post] Error 255
make: *** [modules_install] Error 2
