Kernel panic after building kernel in Red Hat?

view story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I've been trying to build a new kernel for Red Hat Enterprise Linux virtual installs under VM Ware. I've followed these steps so far: Download the kernel from kernel.org. Extract the downloaded file. make menuconfig make -j8 make modules make -j8 modules_install install And everything seems to work ok, however, when I reboot and access to the kernel version built, I get a kernel panic screen, and pressing F1 I get messages like: Could not load /lib/modules/3.10.14/modules.dep No such file ...
