So you tried 'cat install.txt' and there was nothing in it? Or nothing came up on the display when you ran the 'make install > install.txt'?

w00t! Ok, I've written it to a file with:

make install &> install

here is the output of make install:


Code:
root:/root/e100-2.1.29/src$ make install
@@@@/bin/sh: -W: unrecognized option
Usage:	/bin/sh [GNU long option] [option] ...
	/bin/sh [GNU long option] [option] script-file ...

	--help
	--init-file
	--login
	--noediting
	--noprofile
	--norc
	--posix
	--rcfile
	--restricted
	--verbose
	--version
	--wordexp
Shell options:

	-abefhkmnptuvxBCHP or -o option
Makefile:180: *** *** Aborting the build. *** This driver is not supported on kernel versions older than 2.4.0.  Stop.

Now that we have that, Any idea's?


BTW: The NIC is an Intel Pro/100

Why didn't you enable the eepro100 module when you built your driver?

EDIT: I still can't seem to find it in there anywhere...

ah huh!!! you legend! Mad as! And it also has support for the second NIC too!!

Now once I've compiled the kernel, how do i make it use each module for the right NIC...or does it just the correct one automatically? So there'd be no modprobe cmds needed..?

You put an entry in /etc/modules.conf for each nic,
alias eth0 eepro100
alias eth1 module-name
etc...

Ahh....makes sense

Are you meant to do that even if your modprobing the module?

Say I were to add: modprobe eepro100 into an init script, then would i still have to add
alias eth0 eepro100
alias eth1 module-name (can't remember what its called)

into /etc/modules.conf...

The order that the modules are loaded will determine what device they are attached to, or you can use modules.conf to set it.
