stLinux kernel version modules path

To workaround path issue with depmod -a 

/lib/modules# cp -r 5.15.67 5.15.67-g8d25ddcc4f56

# /sbin/depmod -a
depmod: ERROR: could not open directory /lib/modules/5.15.67-g8d25ddcc4f56: No such file or directory
depmod: FATAL: could not search modules: No such file or directory

this error is because after compiling some kernel changes, mostly device tree changes, Makefile populates lib/modules/5.15.67 however, how to fix where the modules path is, or what the kernel version is ?

# uname -r
5.15.67-g8d25ddcc4f56

HI,

You can use the command (echo "" > .scmversion) which allows you to by-pass this auto-generation of kernel version number
Then you'll need to rebuild your kernel, and you should normally be on the same version
