Is your kernel source unpacked? In the distros I've come across the installed package just puts a tar.gz or tar.bz2 in usr/src. It's up to me to unpack it.

blata 01-28-04 09:33 PM

yes its unpacked, installed, and running. I had the 4496 drivers working just fine. Untill I tryed install the 5336 drivers now I cant get eather of them to install.

blata 01-29-04 08:04 PM

I got it to work.

Im runing RH 9

I rebooted into an old kernel

rpm -e kernel.2.4.20-28.9
rpm -e kernel-source

to uninstall the old kernel and source

then I

rpm -Uvh ftp://bugs.osu.edu/pub/Linux/RedHat/...kernel-source*
(my ftp site feel free to use)

then I ran up to date to install the kernel I had just uninstalled as well as update the source rpm and bingo after a reboot 5336 installed with nary an error.
