Compiling a missing kernel modul
« on: May 08, 2023, 03:41:37 AM »
I'm trying to compile a missing kernel modul for a intel Soc Soundcard cht-bsw-rt5672

Made the steps from this post:
http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,26236.0.html

And enable the driver with "make menuconfig".

All compiled well but loading the driver with insmod run in a "unknow symbol" error.
Can anyone give me a hint, how to compile a working driver modul from kernel source?

This typically means that your new module depends on another module(s) that it cannot find.

Try the command "modinfo /path-to-module/new-module-name" and check the "depends" line.
