unresolved symbols when installing acx100 drivers


I've tried downloading and installing the ACX100/111 drivers for my Netgear WG311 v2 PCI wireless card, but when it gets to the depmod I get the following errors/unresolved symbols:

Quote:

What am I missing? What do I need to do to resolve the symbols? I've looked on Google but can't find anything :\

Thanks

Where did you download it from?
The sourceforge CVS version work for me a couple of months ago.
It needed the full kernel source installed to compile.

I've got the full kernel source installed and I downloaded it from the "official snapshots" link (http://lisas.de/~andi/acx100/) in the ACX100 wiki. I downloaded the latest snapshot (pre8 with fixes 23).

I've got wireless-tools installed and everything else that one or two walk throughs said I'd need, and I've done a 'make deps' on the kernel source after making sure that all of the configs were OK (net_wireless or whatever it was). I've had the same problem with the MadWifi drivers, but then I found out that because I had a v2 card then they wouldn't work anyway.

I'm using Redhat 9 (completely fresh install) and kernel 2.4.20-8 (if you didnt notice from the list of errors).

after trying to recompile the kernel (without following instructions!) and killing Redhat, then reinstalling it, recompiling with module versioning turned off (something that was recommended in the MadWiFi FAQ) and trying to reinstall again, I'm still getting the same errors. The install is completely fresh (I've not even replaced Bluecurve as the default skin!). I tried downloading from CVS, but it gave me an authentication error when using the instructions on the SourceForge CVS page for the project.

Does anyone know how to get these symbols to resolve? Its slightly annoying having a wireless card that won't install! I even resorted to trying to install WinXP and Win98 while I waited for a reply, but they fail during install too! But no, I'm not using old hardware - Athlon XP (dunno how fast) and a nVidia Geforce4 MX (I think), so its a good computer, it used to be my brother's Windows gaming computer.
