cant re-make modules with stock source?


I was trying to load the module for ntfs support in fedora core 1. source linux-2.4. So I tried doing "make dep" "make clean" "make modules" and during make modules it errored out even without adding the ntfs support. I disable the module its complaining about and it finds another to complain about. This is the default settings its erroring out in, what can I do? The error number is "error 2"

Please if anyone has any suggestions, I would appreciate any input. I've been in irc rooms and asked many times, and ive followed tutorials that worked for others, and it just doesnt work right on the fedora core for some reason.

Could you please copy a bigger part of the error message? Usually the most important thing is just after last successfull command.

I've personally had to go through at least 10 times during certain compiles and remove/add something that the make dep didn't properly take care of. My suggestion is to persevere (sp?) on, read the "HELP" files associated with the erroring modules to see if it lists the deps, and satisfy them. If they are un-needed, remove them, if all you are looking to do is add NTFS module support, grab a vanilla source from kernel.org and compile just the NTFS module... You have a lot of options

Cool

Ah yes, and full fledged error messages are always a nice touch to a post regarding errors. Thanks Mara for the reminder, I'm certainly getting rusty lately

Cool

sorry for not posting the whole message, Im still a bit new, and the linux machine is in the other room and its hard to run back and forth. Now the whole reason I am trying to get it to read ntfs is because I cant get the current modem to work on linux, therefor I wont be able to download a new module for ntfs from kernel.org and get it onto my linux box. If I could get the modem to work, I would be worrying about all this.
