    Idea is simple - kernel build was unsuccessful and you didn't analyze errors.

    Use
    Code:
    make kernel
    make kernel-install

    cd /whatever-you-want/broadcom/src/1.9.2.7-rtn
    $ make kernel
    $ make
    i fallowed the steps

    no make kernel -install in tutorial? is the tutorial good?
    should i have done a make-kernel install after make kernel?

    It is very hard to write tutorial containing all possible cases & understood-able for all people. It is open project and everybody can help us to improve any tutorial & wiki.

    You have to look into src/gateway/Makefile and will find both "kernel" & "kernel-install" targets. Additionally you can read kernel docs at kernel.org or under linux/linux-2.6/Documentation/kbuild/

    Thanks

    Thank you for halp.
    I manage to compile the firmware.
    Now i have a problem.
    I wanna connect my router to a webcam. After looking for details and compiling the firmware i bump in to the following issue:
    Webcam genius driver gspca_sonixb.ko.
    I did compile all the drivers, just to be sure if this is not the one to have the all readi.
    Now
    When i tri to load the driver using "insmod gspca_sonixb.ko" i get:
    insmod: can't insert 'gspca_sonixb.ko': unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter
    using "modprob gspca_sonixb.ko":
    modprobe: chdir(/opt/lib/modules): No such file or directory
    what i am doing wrong?

    I also truied this using the firmware resulted from the compile, *trx. Same result

    you need to use insmod instead, i.e.
    Code:
    insmod gspca_sonixb
    modprobe is broken in the firmware for some reason it searches inside /opt/lib/modules instead of /lib/modules + it requires /lib/modules/2.6.22.19/modules.dep which is not installed by default.

    regarding your other note about ntfs.ko if you don't need it take a look at src/gateway/Makefile there is a line which installs it
