make modules_install error


Hello,
When I recompile my kernel 2.6.9 I get a strange error :

...
INSTALL sound/pci/ac97/snd-ac97-codec.ko
INSTALL sound/pci/snd-intel8x0.ko
INSTALL sound/soundcore.ko
if [ -r System.map ]; then /sbin/depmod -ae -F System.map 2.6.9; fi
WARNING: /lib/modules/2.6.9/extra/slusb.ko needs unknown symbol usb_endpoint_halted

Do you know why this happends ?

I also get an error when I boot, it says :
slamr cannot be loaded

Maybe the two are linked...

I you have any idea...

Thanks

After googling it appears that usb_endpoint_halted is defined (or referenced, I'm not a programmer) in linux/drivers/usb/usb-ohci.c

So I would double-check that you have usb-ohci enabled in your kernel:
Code:
$ grep  "CONFIG_USB_OHCI_HCD" /usr/src/linux/.config
If you don't have 'y' or 'm' I would suggest rebuilding your kernel with support for ohci host controller.

If this is already enabled make sure it is modprobed...

Ok, forget that last post..."usb_endpoint_halted" appears in several source files dealing with the USB subsystem.

In any event, you should ensure support for your usb host controller. Try running:
Code:
$ lspci -v | grep USB
on my system this command returns:
Code:
0000:00:02.0 USB Controller: nVidia Corporation nForce2 USB Controller (rev a4) (prog-if 10 [OHCI])
0000:00:02.1 USB Controller: nVidia Corporation nForce2 USB Controller (rev a4) (prog-if 10 [OHCI])
0000:00:02.2 USB Controller: nVidia Corporation nForce2 USB Controller (rev a4) (prog-if 20 [EHCI])
So I would ensure OHCI and EHCI support in my kernel.

good luck...

Hello,

My system says UHCI and EHCI, but I have both of them as modules in my kernel.
I don't understand...

Thanks

Sorry bud, I was just describing some troubleshooting tips that I would try if this was my problem. I don't know the solution to your problem, so I spose you need to wait for an expert to step in here.

What is 'slamr' module for? And slusb? Is it USB modem?

Hey,

Thanks anyway !

I don't know what those modules are. I don't even know where they are in the 'make menuconfig'. I don't have USB modem...

Well that's odd. I assumed that slamr was a module you needed for a particular piece os hardware. A bit more investigating reveals that slamr has something to do with winmodems. (IE software modems).

If you are not using one of these devices and everything else 'works' then you can probably just ignore these messages.

This leads me to believe that you are using a kernel (source?) provided by your distro because it appears that slamr support is provided by a third party (ie nvidia drivers) which taint the kernel. My point is it should not exist in a vanilla kernel sources.

Hey,

I did install a patch for my inbuilt modem. It works fine ! Maybe this is why I turned the module on... I don't remember, it was a long time ago

Thanks for your help !
