Re: modconf doesn't support 2.4.2 kernel?
If a PCMCIA LAN bus card is the issue,
carefully read /usr/src/modules/pcmcia-cs/README-2.4,
as the kernel Configure.help is not adequate in this instance.
For support of my:
# cardctl ident 1
product info: "3Com Corporation", "3CCFE575BT", "LAN Cardbus Card",
manfid: 0x0101, 0x5157
function: 6 (network)
PCI id: 0x10b7, 0x5157
it was necessary to compile the kernel with:
after which one CAN still compile PCMCIA modules in the old 2.2.nn
style, with my module support through:
Module Size Used by
3c575_cb 20032 2
cb_enabler 2736 2 [3c575_cb]
ds 6768 2 [cb_enabler]
i82365 23216 2
pcmcia_core 43392 0 [cb_enabler ds i82365]
The down side is that with the old 2.2.nn method the who zoo of PCMCIA
support modules is generated, while if suffices to use:
# PCMCIA/CardBus support
then only necessary modules can be specified for compiling.
Once compiled and installed in the /lib/modules/2.4.nn tree
modconf does properly perceive these modules.
