a dependency on MODPOST and it is not there.

It turns out that SUSE provides the facility to compile the MODPOST
module but does not actually run it during the install??

The actual script is in

I decided to run all the scripts just for fun.

a) cd /usr/src/linux
b) make cloneconfig
c) make scripts

I was then able to compile the original module I needed.

/usr/srs/linux/README.SUSE was also helpful.
