Description Todd Kennedy 2003-04-04 19:17:28 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021207

Description of problem:
installed kernel source using the "add/remove applications" control panel
(already had all the developer tools installed).

make xconfig
select kernel options (the one option i'm trying to build is the ntfs.o
read-only kernal module, but i went through and customized the kernel)
save and exit kernel configurator
make dep && clean bzImage modules modules_install.

i am compiling my ethernet driver as a module.  3com ethernet

compile stops with the following errors (on the make modules part)
this text box will not contain all the errors, so i have posted them to my
website: http://www.robotholocaust.com/kernel_errors.txt

these are the last few lines from make -C net modules
dummy.c: In function `dummy_init':
dummy.c:58: invalid suffix on integer constant
dummy.c:58: called object is not a function
dummy.c: In function `dummy_cleanup_module':
dummy.c:117: invalid suffix on integer constant
dummy.c:117: called object is not a function
make[2]: *** [dummy.o] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.20-8/drivers/net'
make[1]: *** [_modsubdir_net] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.20-8/drivers'
make: *** [_mod_drivers] Error 2

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run make xconfig
2. select loadable modules
3. run make dep && clean bzImage modules modules_install (or just make modules)

Actual Results:  I got the errors described above

Expected Results:  The kernel modules should have compiled correctly
