I have a problem with the 2.4.7 kernel only, not with the 2.4.6.
In the 2.4.6, using make xconfig, I select Moxa Intellio support, in the
Character devices menu. I made make dep, make clean, make modules, make
modules_install, and then I obtained the moxa.o file in
If I make the same operations with 2.4.7 kernel, I don't obtain moxa.o
The file is not compiled and not installed.
But, if I edit the file .config in /usr/src/linux with 2.4.7 kernel, I see
the line CONFIG_MOXA_INTELLIO=m.
I don't understand why the moxa.c file is not compiled.
I don't receive error messages.
If I want the moxa.o module, I need to make:
gcc -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux-2.4.7/include -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes
-Wno-trigraphs -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -fno-strict-aliasing -fno-common
-pipe -mpreferred-stack-boundary=2 -march=i686 -malign-functions=4 -DMODULE
-DEXPORT_SYMTAB -c moxa.c
and then I have to copy moxa.o in the /lib/modules/2.4.7/kernel/drivers/char
The computer is an i386 , Duron processor
The multiport card is an Intellio Moxa C218 ISA card
The distribution is Suse 7
