OK guys, Im not a linux-n00b, but am an android n00b. I flashed the cyanogenmod ROM onto my nexus 7 2013, built some kernel modules for it, but insmod'ing it says that function isnt implemented. lsmod says /proc/modules is non-existent. What gives? I thought these custom ROMs came with kernel module support. I downloaded the CM kernel source and their default config has a bunch of features and modules that I don't have after flashing the ROM onto my tablet.

Do I need to re-build the kernel to get all these features? Or did I miss a step and forget to flash on the rest of the stuff.... Thanks...

What are you trying to add?

And yes you are going to have to rebuild the kernel with the modules you want to add/implement.

Depending on what you are trying to add, my bet is that there is already a kernel out there that has what you are looking for. Start looking at other kernels. I would definitely look into the ElementalX kernel.
