install PCI ATA133 card problem


Hello all
I'm using the Linux 7.3 and text mode.
I bought a PCI ATA133 card. The chip of this card is HighPoint HPT302 and
the model is Rocket133SB.
But I can't install the driver successfully.
The installation guide and driver for Linux in the follow address.
http://www.highpoint-tech.com/v11_RedHat_r133sb.zip

According to the installation guide, firstly, I used the "Installing HPT302
Driver on an Existing System" method.
But the Linux show me that:
#insmod hpt302.o
hpt302.o: unresolved symbol scsi_register_R4f8b6a93
hpt302.o: unresolved symbol scsi_unregister_R56e69f8a
hpt302.o:
Hint: You are trying to load a module without a GPL compatible license and
it has unresolved symbols. The module may be trying to be a coding or user
error. Contact the module supplier for assistance, only they can help you.

On the other hand, the installation guide mention that:
If you recompile the kernel with SCSI support and still receive the
"unresolved symbols" error, it may be caused that you have not configured
symbol versioning correctly. To correct it, recompile the kernel with symbol
versioning configured. Please refer to the kernel document for more
information.

I had written a e-mail to HighPoint, they replied that:
If you have loaded scsi_mod and sd_mod but still get "unresolved symbol"
errors, it's most likely that you use different kernel config for driver and
kernel. Try to use the config file provided in kernel source to rebuild the
driver.

I want to ask a question.
In my Linux book, this didn't not show "how to rebuild kernel".
I ever tried "make menuconfig". However, I no idea to set the kernel.
Can anyone tell me which option of config. menu help me to solve the
problem?

Thank you

Hello,
Make sure you have kernel version 2.4.18-3. you can find your's by typing 'uname -r'. I'm thinking you may have done an update using Redhat's updater or rebuilt the kernel yourself. If you are using 2.4.18-3 let me know. We'll see what else we can do.

Hello youngstorm
Yes, the kernel is 2.4.18-3 now.
In fact, I had read some articles and my Linux book for rebuild kernel, they just teach use the commands and explain the items in the kernel menu.

However, I no idea which item(s) should be used for me.
Could you give me some idea to rebuild the kernel?

By the way, I forgotten something to tell you.
After I unsuccessfully installed the card, I try to format and reinstall the Linux.
From the installation guide, I saw "Installing RedHat Linux on HPT302 Controller", and I think this method more easy......But, I still can't successfully install the card.

And I discovery that, in the Linux installing process, I'm sure the card working normally. Because I can fix and format the harddisk which connected to the card. However, completed and reboot the computer, occur the problem again.

Thank you

Just to make sure you understand how to rebuild a kernel. Follow these steps.
1. cd /usr/src/linux
2. make mrproper
3. make menuconfig
4. make dep ; make clean ; make bzImage
5. make modules
6. make modules_install

your new kernel will be in /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot

if you have trouble installing it tell which boot loader you use and I'll give help for that.

while going through menuconfig check anything you may need that I dont know about.

now, in menuconfig at the main menu go to:
-Loadable module support --->
in here you should see 3 items, check them all.

-ATA/IDE/MFM/RLL support --->
in here check "ATA/IDE/MFM/RLL support"
then go into
IDE, ATA and ATAPI Block devices --->
in here check "SCSI emulation support"
and anything else you may need.

-SCSI support --->
in here check "SCSI generic support"


let me know how it goes.
good luck

Good morning,
In my instructions under "make menuconfig"
under the "-Loadable module support --->"
I said you should check all 3 items. 1 of them is "symbol versioning"

that should work for you
if not let me know

Hello youngstorm

I'm very sorry, reply so late.

I changed to RH9.0 now, because 9.0 support the card......
I'm very disappointed the technical support of the proxy company.
The man dated me to demo the installation procedure....
Of course, he was using RH9.0 to demo and the step be step very quick. And he challenged my RH7.3 (my RH7.3 is attached by my RH7.3 book)
I was very happy, because he told me that when I use the official RH7.3, the problem will be solved.

The result is.......the problem still occur in the official RH7.3
After I installed the RH9.0, I understood why the man install the card so easy.........

Finally, I still no idea how to recompile the kernel.......

Thank you for your help~~
