Make? As in make and then make install? Or make as in create?

you are going to make a driver file?

Do you mean you need help with installing a particular driver? and if so, what driver is it that you need?

Assuming that you have the drivers. 'cd' into the folder then do a './configure'. After that stay in the folder and do a 'make' then a 'make install'.

Have you looked for an install file in the driver directory? Most drivers (and just about everything else) come with install instructions. You could also check out the manufactuer's site for install instructions if they didn't come with the drivers.

Did you check for any errors in the make, or make install? You could have problems with versions of make ect.

I have looked inside the directory what i found was:

Makefile
Config.in
cmpci.c
README

Um... What do you mean you tried to "run" all of them? I suggest doing a 'less README' and reading the instructions.

Since there is no configure file (the Config.in is not the configure file you do the './configure' with), you probably just have to do a 'make' and then a 'make install'. Is that what you were doing before? What messages were you getting?

try
make config
make modules
make modules_install

I think there is a configure.help to help you with the make config

The makefile might be bad. Have you tried re-downloading it? Downloading it from a different place? Tried a different driver?

Hum,
Confirm that you have a
Config.in
Configure.help
Makefile
README
cmpci
cmpci.c
in the dir the you are building in .

Comfirm that you first did a 'make config' and that worked. Just doing a make won't do anything.
If 'make config' won't work try 'make menuconfig'
If you cant get the config part of the build you can't build the modules. Once you build the modules you can install the mods.
3.
? What gcc version are you using
? What Kernel version

gcc -v and make -v will give you the versions.
sounds like you may be missing files.
I would find another source, it's important to have Configure.help. That is the file that will help you config. without the config being done, the mod can't be build and installed.
cmpci-5.68.tar is what I am ref.

I need to know what it is doing when you try to make. Take me though the steps and results of everything you are doing.

But here is what is in my notes.

I used the configure.help file and set the config for my system.

Then I did a make config

Then did a make modules make modules_install.

if you are seeing
Makefile:159: /Rules.make: No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target `/Rules.make'. Stop.

You need to check you dir. you should be in side /usr/source/linux per the README.

You need to check the readme and untar the files in dir stated. If you are getting that error, it means that your topdir is not where Rules.make is under /usr/src/linux***

the thing is that the folder

/usr/src/linux*** does not exist on Suse 8.1 so maybe there is other way...

what do you think?

:shock:
