Hi,

I dont know why this is not working for me. I was able to compile the hello
world module without errors.

I got the below error:

make -C "/lib/modules/2.6.25.14/build" M=/root modules
make[1]: Entering directory '/usr/src/linux-2.6.25.14'
scripts/Makefile.build:217: target '/root/pcnet32.c' doesn't match the
target pattern
Building modules, stage 2.
MODPOST 0 modules
make[1]: leaving directory  '/usr/src/linux-2.6.25.14'
I got the pcnet32.c file from
/usr/src/linux-2.6.25.14/drivers/net/pcnet32.c. 2.6.25.14 is a compiled
kernel.

Why is it that pcnet32.c did not get compiled when the kernel was compiled?
or when the modules were compiled?

Regards,
Ashish
