Building kernel modules


Hi,

I'm missing the module ppp_async after upgrading (sarge -> squeeze) an embedded debian system which i've inherited.

I don't understand why these modules aren't available precompiled via apt-get or through a standard build system such as the arch linux AUR.

And if it is necessary to build the modules myself then where do I get the source code??

Many thanks for any help received

It is part of the kernel source tree: (linux/drivers/net/ppp_async.c)
It looks like rebuilding the kernel might be necessary which may mean either cross compiling or building on the embedded device itself depending on the architecture.

So it would seem Mr. smeezekitty, so it would seem.
Thanks, I've got reading to do.
