Doing "insmod visor" gives the following output:

/lib/modules/2.4.18-3/kernel/drivers/usb/serial/visor.o: unresolved symbol
usb_serial_register_Rf4ad73ee

Additional info:

I am doing this to try and sync my Palm m500 over a USB link.  I am using the
Rawhide packages:

pilot-link-0.11.5-4
jpilot-0.99.2-11

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2003-02-09 10:29:45 UTC
please use modprobe and not insmod. insmod doesn't take dependencies on other
modules into account, modprobe will and will auto-load the modules that
implement usb_serial_deregister_R61074468 for you.

Comment 2 Stephen Rasku 2003-02-11 04:48:08 UTC
modprobe works.
