Need help running JPilot
I have JPilot running on my system but this is the problem....
It needs a module called visor.o and this is not included in a normal puppy installation. What I did to get it was merge the entire modules.2.4.29-complete.tar.gz file into my modules directory.
This is not good because the file is like 9 MB. My question is; how do I install just one module.
I tried to copy the one file (visor.o.gz) to the proper place and add it to the modules.dep file but this did not work when I tried to “modprobe visor”. It told me that it had a dependency problem but did not tell me what the dependency was.
This program works great for me and it is fast and simple to use (great for puppy).
I am new to puppy and linux so this may be a dumb question?

You were right to copy the visor.o file across the to /lib/modules/2.4.29/ directory, but it's difficult to manually modify modules.dep.
You can put visor.o anywhere in the modules directory, but I would put it in /lib/modules/2.4.29/usb/serial/
Now just run "depmod" and modules.dep will be updated automatically.
If you now open modules.dep in a text editor and search for "visor" you will see that 2 other modules are listed beside it - usbserial.o and usbcore.o. These are the modules that visor.o is dependent upon.
They are, indeed, present so you should now be OK.
