compiling via-rhine module problem


Hi all,

I want to compile the latest via-rhine driver from the scyld site. I download the via-rhine.c, kern_compat.h, pci-scan.h, pci-scan.c as instructed here and put it all under /usr/src/linux/drivers/net directory (by saving my original via-rhine.c file first).

From inside the directory I do what the instruction suggested by running the following command:

gcc -DMOUDLE -D__KERNEL__ -O6 -I/usr/src/linux/include -include /usr/src/linux/include/linux/modversions.h -c via-rhine.c

but I got the following error (I just copy paste a few first line, the whole thing is quite long):

Quote:
via-rhine.c:97: warning: `struct drv_id_info' declared inside parameter list
via-rhine.c:97: warning: its scope is only this definition or declaration, which is probably not what you want
via-rhine.c:98: warning: `struct drv_id_info' declared inside parameter list
via-rhine.c: In function `pci_drv_register':

via-rhine.c:184: error: invalid use of undefined type `struct pci_id_info'

.

I then decide to let slackware compile the driver for me. I save my .config file, do make clean and make mrproper, put back my orginal .config file, then do make oldconfig; make dep; make modules. But What I got is this (first few lines only):

I really don't know what is going on. I belive that the compile command I used to compile this module under RH9 work with no problem. Any C's guru out there can help me with this ?

Thanks a million in advance.
