Ok, I'm a newbie, and I'm trying to add modules to my kernel to make a "linmodem" work on RedHat9. Here's what's happening.
I've got the source for pctel's drivers. I've run thru the instructions a million and 4 times. I do "./configure" and then "make" and then "make install" and everything works fine.
There are two things created after this: pctel.o
I'm supposed to exec "insmod -f pctel" and then "insmod -f ptserial" but when I run the second, I get errors about unresolved symbols. I've got no clue what this means, but I found a script called "fixscript" that I used to try to fix it. It gave me errors like:
ERROR: Symbol 'such-n-such' not found in kernel symbols.
Insert the appropriate module and try again.
I get about 50 of these errors and have no clue what to do now. Can somebody please explain what's goin on and maybe point me into the right direction.
I know that if I just get a hardware modem or a serial modem, my problems would go away. I just don't have a way to get either.
My instructions are from http://www.peacefulaction.org/sayamindu/pctel.html
just in case somebody wants to know what i've been doing.
