FTape 2.06 (sorry for double post)

Post by John Dunni » Thu, 18 Apr 1996 04:00:00



Sorry about the double post - it's really ftape 2.06 - I've been working on
PPPd as well so I had my version numbers mixed up :(....

I'm getting a NR_MEM_LISTS undefined error message in kernel_interface.c when
I compile the ftape driver itself.  I'm using 1.3.89 and it compiled correctly
with ftape support (and I did edit drivers/char/ftape/Makefile).  I have
attempted to cludge it by simply defining it to 3 - I have no idea what it
really is but 3 sounded like a nice number <grins> and then I get these error
messages during fdc-io...

fdc-io.c: In function `fdc_grab_irq_and_dma':
fdc-io.c:1229: warning: passing arg 2 of `request_irq' from incompatible pointer
 type
fdc-io.c:1229: too few arguments to function `request_irq'
fdc-io.c:1237: too few arguments to function `free_irq'
fdc-io.c: In function `fdc_release_irq_and_dma':
fdc-io.c:1269: too few arguments to function `free_irq'
make: *** [fdc-io.o] Error 1

Any ideas??  Thanks....

Let me make sure I get this right: You are trying to compile the standalone
distribution of ftape-2.06 with the kernel sources for 1.3.89 ?

Why on earth would you do that ?

The ftape driver has been part of the standard kernel sources since around
1.3.75 or so - ever had a look at the files in that drivers/char/ftape
directory and wonder why the look *SOOO* much like the standalone ftape
driver ?

Just select ftape when configuring the kernel - you can have it built-in or
as a module, then compile the kernel itself and the kernel modules, and you
have all you need.

1. ftape 2.06 on Linux 1.2.8 will not compile - Help!

Hi,

I downloaded ftape 2.06 and tried to compile it on Linux 1.2.8. I want to run
 backups on my Conner QIC-Wide Tapestor. The compilation reported some
 undefined variables that I was able to eliminate by modifying the driver
 source to include additional .h files from the Linux source (eg modules.h).
 (Probably a good indication that something is seriously wrong with the
 source, the makefile or me!).

 When I finally managed to compile the driver module with no errors, I tried
 to load it onto the kernel with lmodule I got the error message something like
 "kernel_version_unknown".

 Has anybody else encountered this? I found the whole exercise frustrating
 because the documentation seemed to be riddled with inconsistencies, for
 example, modules-1.2.8.tar.gz was referred to as modutils-1.2.8.tar.gz. Is
 there a more stable or reliable version of ftape around?

                        Regards,

                        Duncan Napier.
