Hello Rich!  Hope your day finds you well!
If you know the answer already, this would be useful to know...
Quote
/usr/local/lib/modules/4.19.10-tinycore/kernel/
(and the associated /lib/modules/KERNEL/kernel.tclocal if course)

If I were to call modprobe mydriver after placing mydriver.ko(.gz) in the above directory, does the kernel already know to look here or does the entire path need to be given?
(I'm assuming so, but it's better to ask ridiculous questions and hear someone in the background scoff "...duh!" as opposed to asking after the fact and being the one saying "(apply entire vulgar dictionary here)" for not asking in the first place.)

Thanks!

Hi CentralWare
Both  modprobe  and  modinfo  will find drivers without providing a path:
Code: [Select]
tc@E310:~$ sudo modprobe keyspan
tc@E310:~$ lsmod | grep keyspan
keyspan                20480  0
usbserial              20480  1 keyspan
ezusb                  12288  1 keyspan
tc@E310:~$ sudo modprobe -r keyspan
tc@E310:~$  modinfo keyspan | grep filename:
filename:       /lib/modules/4.19.10-tinycore/kernel.tclocal/drivers/usb/serial/keyspan.ko.gz
tc@E310:~$

Hi CentralWare
... If I were to call modprobe mydriver after placing mydriver.ko(.gz) in the above directory, ...
and then running:
Code: [Select]
sudo /sbin/depmod -a 2>/dev/null
If you use  tce-load  it will detect there are kernel modules
and run  depmod  automatically for you.
