cant install a wireless driver module

Post by merri.. » Wed, 14 Jun 2006 06:44:12



I am trying to insmod a wireless card in an older kernel
Linux embeded.local.net 2.4.22 #1 Fri Nov 18 13:21:28 EST 2005 i686
unknown

anyway I compile up the adm8211.o for my SMC2635w card and try to

#insmod /lib/2.4.22/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/adm8211.o
/lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/adm8211.o: couldn't
find the kernel version the module was compiled for

then

#insmod --force /lib/2.4.22/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/adm8211.o
/lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/adm8211.o: couldn't
find the kernel version the module was compiled for

so it will not insert? any ideas I noticed that linux/version.h was
included , its there and has the correct kernel version
#define UTS_RELEASE "2.4.22"
#define LINUX_VERSION_CODE 132118
#define KERNEL_VERSION(2,4,22)
//(((a) << 16) + ((b) << 8) + (c))

 
 
 

1. Help!... Cant complie driver into module

Hi,

How do I correctly compile a nic driver with gcc? I keep getting an error...

NIC: D-Link dfe530tx+
Source: rtl8139.c
Compile command: gcc -DMODULE -D_KERNEL_ -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O6 -c
rtl8139.c `[ -f /usr/include/linux/modversions.h ] && echo -DMODVERSIONS`

Is this right?

Thanks,
Rick
