ive got a problem with the EXPORT_SYMBOL() macro. i have 2 modules. one
of them uses functions which the other module exports . everything
works fine as long as i leave the symbols global which i want to export
in the exporting module. i want to use EXPORT_SYMBOL() for this task,
so that i can use global symbols without them beeing exported to the
kernel symbol table (i cant use static declaration cause i need some
global vars). now when i try to use it this way (compile is a success)
the other module cant find the external references anymore.
-----can be ignored ------
i think it has something to do with the version information on
symbols . i havent declared MODVERSIONS or included
linux/modversions.h. if i use "nm" on the module object file i get the
right name for the symbols like:
000000 D symbol_exported
but after insmoding it and trying "ksyms" it is reported as:
when i use global symbols or EXPORT_SYMBOLS_NOVERS() it is normal:
i think this _R__xxx could be the reason that the other module cant
find the symbol ??? But i also read insmod manpage and they said if
modules are compiled without versioning the CRC information on symbols
will be ignored ??? ok it is no real CRC info in this case but i think
the whole string after_R will be ignored ??? i also read
linux/modules.h and i wondered about the way EXPORT_SYMBOLS is handled
if no versioning is used. for this case i would have expected that its
behaviour is like EXPORT_SYMBOLS_NOVERS.
i really want to get EXPORT_SYMBOLS working.
Could somebody help me please!!!!!!!!
Thanks in advance...Michael Palme
im sorry when suggestions are wrong but i havent much knowledge off the
P.S.: I ran kernel 2.2.14, 2.2.16, 2.2.18, 2.4.0 (i tried kernels with
and without version information on modules) and tested modutils 2.3.19
and 2.4.1; gcc is 2.95.2 machine x86
