PostPosted: Wed 11 Jan 2012, 17:31    Post subject: lack of .config?  

But I really didn't want to change kernel, would I not
have to make a new puppy_slacko_5.3.1.sfs?
kernel 2.6.37.6
I see now that it downloads the correct version,
is there a config in it?

The title say it all.
All that I have been able to get is
Invalid module format ,
even after getting modversion matching (from modinfo)
I attribute this to lack of .config, a copy from /boot,
copied somewhere into incude as well as /usr/src/linux
dmesg says disagrees about version of symbol module_layout
I have more or less given up, puppy is not suitable
for this netbook at this time
It take more than a hour to compile on this dual core atom

There is a 2.5.37.6 src available
And this src bundle has a .config
cd to wifi src, make uninstall; make clean; make; make install
modprobe rtlwifi
Invalid module format
dmesg |tail
disagrees about version of symbol module_layout

I had absolutely no problem with salix or pclinuxos
compiling this driver, and it works

BTW the vermagic is identical to say aufs or cfg80211
(as shown by modinfo)

The .config is always in the puppy release, it is located (in slacko-MAIN)
at:
/etc/modules/DOTconfig-K2.6.37.6-SMP-TICKLESS-20110520


EDIT:

Hmmmm.. apparently Barry wrestled with this module for some time, here, failed.
