[RESOLVED] udev problem?


I’m having a problem that I’m guessing is udev related.

I built the drivers successfully and rebooted using the directions found here:

voip-info.org/wiki/index.php … stallation

When I enter

modprobe zaptel

I receive:

FATAL: Module zaptel not found.

I am using Ubuntu 5.1, and I believe that is the nature of the problem.

In the /etc/udev/rules.d folder, there was no file named 50-udev.rules. Instead, there was a symbolic link to …/udev.rules, and in the file …/udev.rules I found that the zaptel definitions had already been included.

That didn’t work, so I did some googling and decided to copy the …/udev.rules to the /etc/udev/rules.d folder under the name 50-udev.rules. I rebooted and it still didn’t work.

So, I moved the file 50-udev.rules up to the parent directory and created a symbolic link to the new location named 50-udev.rules, but it still doesn’t work.

Clearly, I’m missing a very simple point, but I just can’t find it.

Thanks in advance for any help.


I discovered my issue.

In the tutorial, it says:

For a Linux 2.6 kernel you may need to:
modify the EXTRAVERSION statement in Makefile so it matches what you see in: cat /proc/version

To clarify that, if your cat/proc/version says (for example):

Linux version 2.6.12-mytestbuild (root@agpcserver) (gcc version 3.4.5 20050 809 (prerelease) (Ubuntu 3.4.4-6ubuntu8.1)) #1 Wed Mar 8 18:01

Then the line in your Makefile should be:

EXTRAVERSION =-mytestbuild
