Patching a proprietary driver
Date: Fri Mar 26 2004 - 09:29:20 EST
I have a PCTEL Modem that works in 2.4.x with the proprietary drivers.
I have upgraded to 2.6.4 and there is no working driver for 2.6.x. A site
offers a driver that compiles (without using kmod type make files) but it
does not get loaded. (My guess is because he does not run modpost which the
kernel make scripts do).
I used kmod makefiles and have set it up properly but:
The problem is that some of their proprietary files (dsp.a, etc.) are
required by the module and when I compile it gives a warning like this:
warning: <filename> has a COMMON symbol.
Can someone help me overcome this?
I compiled at home and now am in office. Thus I can't provide you the exact
Remove .rspam. to send mails.
