One of those simple bang your head on the desk, itís so simple! Yet I canít get it to bloody work moments.

I need to compile a driver/module for the below USB network card hereís a link to the source.
Itís a Moschip MCS7830.

Iím using a modified kernel - openmosix 2.4.26-om (2.4.26 with openmosix patch)

Direct link to the kernel source Iím currently trying to compile it for but Iím just getting no where.

Iím at my witts end, I just cant get it to compile the module for this kernel it ALWAYS says it cant find the source, ivíe tried using plain brand new kernels without the mosix patch, using different versions even modifying the ďmakeĒ file in the driver folder to specifically point to the kernels source folder rather than just to usr/src/$uname Ėr or whatever it was.

In short am I missing something other than the source to compile a module? I did read something about GCC library or something similar but itís very vague in memory or even would someone be able to compile this for me and send it me before I shoot myself with the largest rifle I can find. Any pointers or even a step by step guide would be appreciated there must be something so simple Iím just missing screwing it all up.

PS. This a project Iím working on currently, trying to get a 7 node super computing cluster huhaha! Ill post pictures of the home made rack if I ever get it running right, I got all the nodes working fine now I just need this last one using this network card to bloody work.

Having voices in your head is normal. Listening to them, common. Arguing, acceptable. However, when you lose the argument, you're in trouble.
