I need to build an out of tree, closed, kernel driver and there is a
kernel on OBS that fits my target. How to I create a configured source
tree from that project so that I can build the driver?
Heh, you are on your own here, and you deserve all the pain and
suffering you will get :)
Yeah I know, and I'm going to make sure I pass that suffering on :)
Seriously, you should just be able to install the
and then point your driver's build system at that tree. Note, closed
driver build systems are normally horrible to work, so that might be the
issues you are running into, but as you didn't say what the problem is,
it's hard to guess...
That's what I thought, but when I point the driver to the tree it
complaions of no .config. So is there a way of getting the kernel
source tree into a state as if I had just run 'make config'? So the
linux-$FOO.tar.bz2 + patches applied + config.
Actually, shouldn't you be asking the company who
gave you that driver
as to how to build it?
I've got the instructions which point me to an specific tree, I want
to be able to build this and show it running on openSUSE as we have
everything else already working apart from this driver - heck it may
even give the company the push it needs to either open up or help more
with the community.
good luck, you will need it...
You fill me with confidence ;)
