[tulip] Compilled tulip driver for cardbus- version mismatch
Thu Jun 13 03:40:01 2002
I am able to compile the driver source using the -DCARDBUS option.
But when i load the driver, using insmod or thru pcmcia services,
the kernel gives version mismatch the following messges :
+ lib/modules/2.4.5-3/pcmcia/tulip_cb.o : kernel-module version mismatch
+ lib/modules/2.4.5-3/pcmcia/tulip_cb.o was copiled for kernel version 2.4.4
+ lib/modules/2.4.5-3/pcmcia/tulip_cb.o while this kernel is version
and insmod failed.
I also tried :
# insmod -f tulip_cb.o
How to compile the driver for the current version of the kernel. What is the
compile option for specifying current kernel version?

Note that 0.9.* drivers are based on my code, but not my releases.

Please confirm: you have a CardBus card with a 100baseFx transceiver?!
That's quite unusual.
What type of transceiver does the card have, SYM or MII?
You can run 'tulip-diag' to provide more information
