The -qpl displays many .o files in directory /lib/modules/2.2.16-22. There
is a directory called build in /lib/modules/2.2.16-22 that is linked to
/usr/src/linux-2.2.16. Also there is a link called /usr/src/linux pointing
When I try to do the -ivh I get many "file /lib/modules/2.2.16-22/net/blah.o
from install of kernel-2.2.16-22 conflicts with the file from package

Dont' know how to remove so tried the -i --force , got this:
depmod: ***unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.2.16-22/net/pci-scan.o

Anyway, I compiled pci-scan.c and tulip.c using the suggestion at end of
each source file with these changes:
Used kgcc instead of gcc,
used the -I/usr/src/linux/include you suggested.
I Received a bunch of warning blah blah redifined and this is the location
of the previous definition messages but now have tulip.o and pci-scan.o
I did an insmod tulip.o and got 2 unresolved symbols pci_drv_unregister and
pci_drv_register. I don't suppose this is ok is it?
What do I do at this point?
Thanks again for the help.
