Kernel recompilation

02/11/2012, 08h43

I'am currently using an OVH dedicated server with CentOS 6.3 ( kernel bzImage-3.2.13-xxxx-grs-ipv6-64).
But I found that modules are not loaded :
[root@nsxxxxx /]# lsmod
Opening /proc/modules: No such file or directory
and also /proc /sys /dev are not loaded:
[root@nsxxxxx /]# mount
rootfs on / type rootfs (rw)
/dev/root on / type ext3 (rw,relatime,errors=remount-ro,data=writeback)
none on /proc type proc (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime)
none on /sys type sysfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime)
none on /dev type devtmpfs (rw,relatime,size=16505160k,nr_inodes=4126290,mode =755)

So I tried to recompile the kernel with an other version and it booted it fine:
[root@nsxxxxx /]# uname -r
[root@nsxxxxx /]#
BUT , unfortunately I'm facing the same problems , modules , /proc /sys /dev are not loaded.

Hence , I'am asking is it possible to recompile the dedicated server with a non OVH-version Kernel ( mean a kernel that is not modified by OVH) ?

Thx in advance for your help.
