Hello,

I am trying to compile a third-party A/D card driver (proven to work on 2.2.X kernels) on Debian etch 2.6.18-5-486 & 2.6.18-5-686. As directed, I have changed the makefile to point to the correct linux source header files.

And get the following compilation errors with 2.6.18-5-686:

I get similar undeclared CONSTANTS errors with 2.6.18-5-486 but in irq.h, hw_irq.h etc

I tried to look for them on the internet without much success though. Am I missing a patch or some other package that needs to be present for the compilation to be successful??? Kindly help.

Thanks,
Kranti

So you're trying to compile code written for 2.2.X on 2.6.18?

Why doesn't that seem logical to me?

I have come across a similar error

error: mach_mpspec.h: No such file or directory

trying to build a driver for ubuntu 7.10 with 2.6.22. kernel.

It has previously been built for Fedora 7 with 2.6.24 kernel.

Is there another package that I need to get this to build?

thanks
