    Error installing kernel patch suse 9.1 plz help

    Hello Friends,

    I am new to this forum and linux.

    I have tried to compile and install a kernel patch but make gives errors. The patch is supplied by gnokii to enable Nokia phones to be accessed through a DKU2 cable attached to USB port.
    I'm using Suse 9.1; kernel_2.6

    This is what i have done:

    1) cd gnokii-0.68/patches/kernel_2.6

    2)./configure --with-kernsrcdir=/lib/modules/`uname
    -r`/build --with-kernmoddir=/lib/modules/`uname -r`

    3) make


    make[1]: Entering directory
    `/usr/src/linux-2.6.5-7.193-obj/i386/default'
    make[1]: *** No rule to make target `modules'. Stop.
    make[1]: Leaving directory
    `/usr/src/linux-2.6.5-7.193-obj/i386/default'
    make: *** [module] Error 2


    Any suggestions will be highly appreciated.

    Thanks for the reply in advance.

    regards,

    sybella.

    hello,
    from the kernel PET -> http://www.linuxjunior.org/cgi-bin/p...lay&id=110
    A quick word about patching your kernel
    If you do need to, or simply want to patch your kernel then it is quite easy. Download the patch and move it to /usr/src/. If it is compressed uncompress (e.g. gunzip patchname.gz) it and the cd into the directory /usr/src/linux and type this:
    patch -p1 < ../patch_name.patch
    Here is an example, while in the directory /usr/src/linux and the patch preempt-kernel-rml-2.4.19-2.patch is in /usr/src/ I type
    patch -p1 < ../preempt-kernel-rml-2.4.19-2.patch and the preemptive patch is applied. Walla!
    after the patch is applied run make modules in the directory /usr/src/linux - or maybe /usr/src/linux-2.6

    Also, there seem to be some gnokii rpm's for Suse on Google.
    You might want to try that instead, and not go through the effort of recompiling.

    Hi pbharris,

    Thanks 4 getting back 2me and welcoming me!

    I was following explicit instructions from gnokii who supplied the patch. Should i do what you suggested and ignore their instructions? I'm new 2 all this i don't want to screw-up ma system? Or should i post their makefile 2see if it will work with your instructions? Please help. :'(

    Thanks again 4 your suggestions.

    regards,

    Re:Error installing kernel patch suse 9.1 plz help

    Thanx Trickster,

    I'm going to have a look and see if the gnokii rpms include the 'DKU2 Linux kernel module'.
    The mobile(nokia 6680) I want to use with gnokii uses dku2 cable to connect over the USB port and hence the need for the patch so that it can be identified by gnokii.


    I have also looked at using pbharris's suggestion but the patch is not a file but a folder with the following files:config.status, configure, configure.in, makefile, makefile.in nokia_dku2.c, config.log and folder autom4te.cache (output.0, requests, traces.o).

    which i think idicates that it has to be compiled or something?

    regards,

    sybella

    Hi,

    I will have to install 'DKU2 Linux kernel module' if i want to use dku2 cable even if i install the gnokii rpms.

    regards,

    I'm guessing the compilation error you are getting has to do with needing the kernel sources. However, I am not 100% sure.
    Does the folder "/usr/src/linux-2.6.5-7.193-obj/i386/default" exists?
    Is there anything inside it?
