Description of problem:
While trying to build the ndiswrapper module I get an error saying
Module.symvers is missing. I believe this should be in the
Here is an article mentioning this file. The file is refered to in the
Makefile in the build directory, not the Makefile for ndiswrapper.
if possible can you email me the Module.symvers file for that kernel
package? I'd like to see if that fixed my problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download ndiswrapper from sf
2. Try to compile it
Actual Results: Failure
Expected Results: Success
Confirmed while building nVIDIA module. I cannot determine how this
file gets created, but it is referenced by scripts/modpost and is
removed from the source tree by 'make mrproper'. Rebuilding the entire
kernel and modules from the kernel-source did create this file (I
rebuilt a custom build of -1.326 so I cannot post it for you). I will
rebuild the default config i686 kernel -1.322 later and attach the
Module.symvers if it is created.
Using the kernel-<vers>.src.rpm and rebuilding via rpmbuild -ba
--target=i686 did NOT create the Modules.symvers file anywhere in the
rpms (that I can find). I presume the kernel sources are being cleaned
(mrproper) before being packaged. Modules.symvers needs to show up in
the /lib/modules/<vers>/build directory before it is destroyed.
Once this file was copied into the build directory my module compile
