IT8212 Compilation Issues under 9.1....<grin>


New to the forum, so please bear with me.

I know this has been beaten to death here, and I have read as much as possible by searching, but I seem to have a slightly different problem than other posters.

When I first installed SUSE 9.1, without updating anything, I was ble to compile the IT8212 source (LinuxDriver_it8212_092005-09), and it would insmod with no trouble. I was able to mount and access a 160Gig HDD without a problem.

I then proceeded to due a massive system update, which worked excellently, and even managed to update KDE to 3.3.1 with no trouble. When I upgraded the kernel to 2.6.5-7.111 (along with the source, of course) the module will not compile, even after changing the Makefile to reflect the new kernel source and moving the iteraid.c, .h and Makefile into the /usr/src/linux-2.6.5-7.111/drivers/scsi directory.

Here are the errors I get when I run make:
Quote:
make -C /usr/src/linux-2.6.5-7.111 SUBDIRS=/usr/src/linux-2.6.5-7.111/drivers/scsi modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.5-7.111'

WARNING: Symbol version dump /usr/src/linux-2.6.5-7.111/Module.symvers is missing, modules will have CONFIG_MODVERSIONS disabled.

Building modules, stage 2.
MODPOST
/bin/sh: line 1: scripts/modpost: No such file or directory
make[2]: *** [__modpost] Error 127
make[1]: *** [modules] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.5-7.111'
make: *** [modules] Error 2
Can anybody suggest anything (helpful, that is)

By running make modules from within the /usr/src/linux-whatever/your/number/maybe

This apparently creates the scripyts/modpost file needed by the Makefile.
