I'm trying to get module support working. I'm trying to get the
joystick-2.7.3 modules to integrate with kernels 1.2.8 or 1.3.3. I'm
running gcc-2.6.3. When I applied the elf patches to either of these
kernel trees and compiled, I got a working kernel, but NO modules
(including those packaged with the kernel!) could find the kernel symbol
table. I _think_ (just because I have no other explanation) that this is
related to the elf-format kernel.
Is there any way with gcc-2.6.3 to compile the kernel in a.out
format so that the modules work and find the symbol table? I tried adding
-b i386-linuxaout to the top level kernel Makefile, but the compilation
still bombs out in a number of places.
Any suggestions? I'm trying to get the joystick module into
my kernel so I can start trying to hack joystick support into dosemu.
Thanks for any info.
