What does this mean?

I am trying to get my modules for my kernel to compile so that I can use what I need to use as modules. Whenever I try to do 'make modules', I get this common error:

boot_cpu_data_R0657d037 undeclared (first use in this function)

What does this mean. I am also trying to compile the four modules that will make my dxr3/Hollywood decoder card to work and I get the same errors there as well. Is there something I need to enable in the configuration menu?

Usually that means you aren't including the proper header file in the module. How are you compiling the modules? Usually when you compile a seperate module you would do something like this:

- Copy the source files to /usr/src/modules
- Run "gcc -DMODULE -D__KERNEL__ -O6 -c module.c"
- To test it run "insmod module.o"
- Run "install -m 644 module.o /lib/modules/`uname -r`/net"

There should be instructions that came with the module on how to compile it if it needs anything special.
