BestCrypt 1.5.5 rebuild fails on SuSE 9.1

Hi everyone!

When trying to rebuild BestCrypt with
rpmbuild --rebuild BestCrypt-1.5-5.src.rpm
on SuSE 9.1 I'm getting the following errors:


gcc -c -D__KERNEL__ -DMODULE -I/lib/modules/2.6.5-7.75-default/build/include/asm/mach-default/ -DKBUILD_BASENAME=BestCrypt -I/usr/src/packages/BUILD/bcrypt/mod/../include/ -I/lib/modules/2.6.5-7.75-default/build/include/ -O6 -fno-strength-reduce -fno-strict-aliasing -c -o bc_dev26.o bc_dev26.c

OK, so I suppose it fails because my kernel doesn't have loadable modules support.
But I'm quite sure that the standard SuSE 9.1 kernel _has_ support for that, so what am I supposed to do to get this working?

As the Jetico site proposes, I tried to run
make mrproper && make dep in /usr/src/linux; I also tried it with make cloneconfig && make dep, but this didn't change a thing.

As I have no experience with kernel compiling, I'd be grateful for some hints!

Thanks a lot in advance!

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

If you knew your thread was better off in a different forum, you should have clicked the "report this post to a moderator" link and one of us would have moved it.
