Description David Mills 2000-05-11 00:22:17 UTC
The emu10k1 driver delivered with the kernel loads correctly.  But after
recompiling the kernel and modules this driver no longer loads.  It
complains of missing symbols such as kfree.

I investigated and found that the file audio.o had been compiled during the
compilation of the kernel and thus was not compiled with -DMODULE.  After
recompiling this file with -DMODULE, re-linking emu10k1.o and placing it in
/lib/modules the sound driver then loads correctly.

I guess a makefile involved in the building of modules needs correcting.
