You don't need to do that. It was already built as a module and all you had to do was load it. Or perhaps there was a different problem at play.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

No problemo. I never installed the kernel that I built because I can get pretty nervous, with shaky hands in an operating room and I already killed a VPS.

Can you please provide instructions for loading that module?

Thanks!

What type of VPS have you rented? Are you sure your VPS is running its own kernel? What is the result of the command:
uname -a

Since day one, when I compared my trusty old CentOS 5 box against those fancy schmancy rented VPS, I have suspected that Virtual is the opposite of Real.

Code: Select all

[ramon@vps61676 ~]> ls -l /etc/modprobe.d
total 4
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 166 Apr  7 09:37 firewalld-sysctls.conf
[ramon@vps61676 ~]> 
[ramon@vps61676 ~]> 
[ramon@vps61676 ~]> 
[ramon@vps61676 ~]> 
[ramon@vps61676 ~]> 
[ramon@vps61676 ~]> uname -a
Linux vps61676.inmotionhosting.com 3.10.0 #1 SMP Mon Mar 16 15:39:59 MSK 2020 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
[ramon@vps61676 ~]>
I have found on the web recommendations: "Edit the grub.conf file". Except that my rented VPS doesn't have one.

That's not CentOS.

Well, that explains some things. If you go to my provider and check the VPS offerings (they only support Linux, 3 distros), the default is claimed to be CentOS 7.
