how to integrate driver source into kernel source tree


Hi all,

I am newbie to linux, I am currently trying to build custom 2.4 kernel rpm packages with bcm5700 driver.

What I did is get the bcm5700 source , which is a directory, put into kernel source tree: /kernel-source-top/driver/net

then I followed the e1000 driver way and came out a makefile for bcm5700 driver, in config files used by kernel.spec, I added CONFIG_BCM5700=m (same as e1000). In /driver/net/Makefile, I did similiar changes.

but when I run rpmbuild -bb /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/kernel.spec,

the rpm will built out without bcm5700 driver, (e1000.o was inside).

Is there anything else I should do but I haven't done?

Looking forward for masters' help!

Thanks in advance!

The policy on these boards is No bumping. You can bump after 24 hours or no replies. Not 2 hours.

Your question was clear enough, and when the rest of the US wakes up and gets to work, I am sure you get some answers, sorry but I can't help. And actually, there are many on these forums who will not answer you since you bumped yourself twice, which is against forum rules.

so what is this?

is it that I did some "illegal" bumping and nobody will even care to give any comments to my problem?

I understand that rules are rules. But rules to beginner shall not be this straight, isn't it?
