need to recompile ftape: recompile kernel too?

Post by David Ishe » Sun, 14 Jul 1996 04:00:00



I'm trying to get ftape to work, and after upgrading my kernel to
2.0.0 on my Red Hat system I noticed the tape controller hex address
is wrong. I corrected the makefile in
/usr/src/linux/drivers/char/ftape so now I need to re-compile. I have
ftape setup as a loadable module.

The main question is do I need to recompile the whole kernel + modules
or should I just recompile ftape? Can I just run 'make modules' then
'make modules_install' and have it work? Or should I just run make in
/usr/src/linux/drivers/char/ftape and move ftape.o to
/lib/modules/2.0.0?

Any advice or insight is appreciated.
