Default trustix (cloud) nvnet

I have installed the nvnet driver under slack without a hitch, but moving over to trustix hasn't worked. I cannot get the nvnet driver to work.

#make install
I add the alias

#modprobe nvnet
/lib/modules/2.4.22-4trfirewall/kernel/drivers/net/nvnet.o: kernel-module version mismatch
/lib/modules/2.4.22-4trfirewall/kernel/drivers/net/nvnet.o was compiled for kernel version 2.4.20-22em
while this kernel is version 2.4.22-4trfirewall.
modprobe: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.22-4trfirewall/kernel/drivers/net/nvnet.o failed
modprobe: insmod nvnet failed

I don't want to throw in another NIC, but use the integrated nforce one. I get the same thing with insmod alone as well.

Anyone have any suggestions for me?

OK, I managed to find something...

The headers for the kernel needed to be changed from what I understood. So, I did the following, as outlined by someone from a few months ago off a trustix list.


Get the source rpm for your current kernel.

rpm -i kernel-xxx.src.prm

rpm -bp /usr/src/trustix/specs/kernel-xxx.spec

cd /usr/src/rpm/build/linux-xxx

cp ../../source/kernel-xxx-i586.config .config

change a line in the Makefile
to EXTRAVERSION = -4tr or for the other kernel mentioned below
EXTRAVERSION = -4trfirewall before doing make mrproper

make mrproper
make oldconfig
make dep
make include/linux/version.h

Now your kernel header are in the directory

Investigate you drivers makefile how to point the kernel includes to this.


My tree is a bit different than this, although I found what I needed. Apparently the person did it from memory and the paths weren't all correct. Anyway, it worked out fine.

After this, I uninstalled the drivers from before, did make clean, make, make install, and insmod nvnet. I recieved the following output:

Hint: You are trying to load a module without a GPL compatible license
and it has unresolved symbols. The module may be trying to access
GPLONLY symbols but the problem is more likely to be a coding or
user error. Contact the module supplier for assistance, only they
can help you.

Using /lib/modules/2.4.22-4trfirewall/kernel/drivers/net/nvnet.o


So, still no go.

Again, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank in Advance,

I have a few other nics working, so no biggie. But, I don't like buying hardware that just sits there. Not like I can take the integrated NIC out and pop it into another machine, eh.

Anything, even a comment at this point, would be nice.
