Default Install Problem 1.0-5336 with Kernel 2.6.5 on Debian Woody 3.0r2

Hello all,

the installation of the 5336 driver fails with kernel 2.6.5, but it works with kernel 2.6.4.

System Debian Woody 3.0r2, the failure exists on two different machines.
Compiler: gcc 2 .95

Any ideas?

Best regards,
Tobias

The symlink /usr/src/linux may not be correctly pointing to the 2.6.5 source. The source should be found without the command line option if the kernel is running at the time (good idea to compile / install while running on the target). This is usually a problem of the installer looking at the wrong source tree.

What version of XFree86 is in 3.0r2? I was running 2.6.4 kernel with XFree86 4.2.x without any problems, but upgraded to 4.3.0-7 when the packages hit debian-testing. While the drivers appear to work just fine with 4.3.0 (there is this problem with X restarting after a random period of inactivitiy) I have not been able to recompile them. It could be a 2.6.5 problem, but I'm doubting it because I get the same problem when the only thing that had changed was XFree86.


Edit: I just found this post which solved my problems. Check to see if /usr/src/linux-2.6.5/include/linux/version.h exists. If not, run `make prepare` in /usr/src/linux-2.6.5

Thanks eryanv,

this solved my problem.

Kernel 2.6.5 shows an agressive style doing 'make clear', because 'version.h' will be deleted.

So you could add

do_clear := NO

to /etc/kernel-pkg.conf
