Yes, I am not sure whether this list is the appropriate one for this, or
some devel list, but I have always gotten awesome answers here, so I am
going to "bite the bullet"
I attempted to compile the mol-modules two ways this afternoon. First
from a Wiki page from ubuntu located:
and then one comprised from several different web sites and posts and
such that were debian specific. Both, when done right, yielded the same
results, when I started mol I got the error that it could not load the
module, that it was the wrong type or something. So I googled for a
while, finding next to nothing, then I ran across some obscure post
about an nVidia (or however it's spelled) kernel module needing a patch
to compile under gcc 3.4.(1 maybe?), and remembered that I just upgraded
to gcc 3.4 last week. So I removed gcc3.4 (and base) and manually
linked the links in /usr/bin to the 3.3 counterparts (gcc, gcov,
gccbug), went back into the /usr/src/modules/mol, did the "debian/rules
build" and "debian/rules binary-mol-modules" installed the resulting
deb, and viola mol worked!
So my QOTD is twofold, why are things so different in gcc 3.4, (if that
can be answered simply) and based on what I have said, is there I patch
I needed, or did I do something wrong?
I am on a self-compiled 2.6.12-rc6 kernel, (compiled with gcc-3.3.6
(Debian)) and when I installed gcc-3.4 (and base) I did manually relink
/usr/bin/gcc,gcov,gccbug to the 3.4 counterparts (maybe my mistake?)
Thanks in advance for help/suggestions
