Compilation of a new kernel with compiled modules

Compilation of a new kernel with compiled modules

Post by Jan Ková » Tue, 06 Mar 2001 17:44:26

I am using Raid adapter, that is supported only in Redhat 6.2 and 7.0. The
drivers are supplied compiled for this OS. There are these files there:
modinfo, modules.cgz, modules.dep, pcitable, rhdd-6.1, readme.txt
I wanted to compile the kernel 2.4.2. There is not source code for this raid
adapter in the new kernel. So I have send an e-mail to Promise hotline to
get the source code for the adapeter. The answer was:
"We do not offer the driver source code as it is proprietary to promise
So is there any possibility to compile the new kernel and have the raid
adapter working?
I am talking about Promise Fasttrack100. It is an ATA100 Raid adapter.

Thanks for help.

1. Kerneld Compilation Problem - No Modules are load after using the new kernel


I used Red Hat 7.1 and want to enable IP Masquerade as I want to set up  a
linux router.
So I compile the RH71.
However, after I compile the kerneld and modules, install the kerneld and
update LILO,
restart, and check with the "lsmod" commands, I find No modules were loaded.
Previously, about 10 modules were loaded.

Can anyone help?
