Difference between FC2 x86_64 up kernel and boot kernel on FC2 amd64 dvd?


I have a kernel module compiled against 2.6.5-1.358 uniprocessor that loads without error under that kernel. The version in Makefile was changed to 2.6.5-1.358 instead of 358custom. The module will load in an installed 2.6.5-1.358 OS but it will not load from the initrd boot kernel on the FC2 AMD64 boot DVD.

The kernel versions appear to be the same, both are uniprocessor, both are x86_64 (not ia32e) and both are version 2.6.5-1.358. When I try and insmod the kernel module from the VC#2 shell it fails but I get no error message.

Does anyone know if there is anything special about the boot kernel on the FC -AMD64 DVD that is different from the 2.6.5-1.358 uniprocessor kernel that gets installed by this same DVD?

The end goal is making a device driver diskette. The diskette and modules.cgz archive work fine but the driver module itself will not load, even if I manually extract it from the modules.cgz archive. Can't figure why it loads in the installed OS but not from the boot kernel/initrd on the FC2 DVD.

Any help is appreciated!
