kernel source and gcc
I am in the middle of getting the madwifi driver to work for a d-link wireless
card. In the course of doing the make for the wifi driver, I encountered the
make: Entering directory `/usr/src/kernel-headers-2.6.8-2-386'
CC [M] /home/kloro/linux/madwifi-ng/ath_hal/ah_osdep.o
In file included from include/asm/thread_info.h:16,
include/asm/processor.h:87: error: array type has incomplete element type
At this point, the compiler is not dealing with madwifi stuff per se, but with
kernel source. Specifically, to the best of my research, an array variable
(object in the new parlance) needs to be declared somewhere in the .c files.
How can this be? Lots of people use the kernel code for lots of purposes. How
can this bug still be lingering around?
