Description of problem:
I'm trying to compile the source code for a third party driver for a
multi modem card from equinox
I had no problem compiling the source for the drivers using kernerl
sources version 2.6.5
I'm getting a set of syntax when compiling the source code. The errors
reference the kernel file little_endian.h
Having googled (for little_endian.h) a bit I've found two other people
seeing the same problem when trying to compile sources for other
I've attached a copy of the output errors from the compiler
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.installed kernel sources for ver 2.6.9-1.681
2.built and installed a new kernel
3.install equinox sources (following instructions on equinox page)
4.Try to build equinox sources (either using SPECS or make directly)
Actual Results: I get a series of syntax errors reported in the file
Expected Results: I should have been able to compile the sources
without generating errors

The output from make when trying to compile equinox sources
I've just found someone posting what looks like a fix to this problem
I tried compiling the same equinox sources under kernel-2.6.10 and
they compile without problems.
I guess that the problem has been resolved in the later kernel, though
I cannot see the relevant change when looking at the little_endian.h
or at the types.h header.
An update has been released for Fedora Core 3 (kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3) which
may contain a fix for your problem. Please update to this new kernel, and
report whether or not it fixes your problem.
If you have updated to Fedora Core 4 since this bug was opened, and the problem
still occurs with the latest updates for that release, please change the version
field of this bug to 'fc4'.
> If you have updated to Fedora Core 4 since this bug was opened.
I have upgraded to FC4 since opening this bug. I have not seen the problem at all
under FC4. I currently running a 2.6.11-1 kernel.
