    Change driver format: not stripped to stripped


    Hello,

    I have a driver which has the following format:

    "ELF 32-bit LSB shared object, ARM, version 1(SYSV), dynamically linked, not stripped"

    and I want to change the format to the following one:

    "ELF 32-bit LSB shared object, ARM, version 1(SYSV), dynamically linked, stripped"

    How can I do that? The driver is for a Android device, which is based on a smaller Linux distribution.

    Insmod with the not stripped driver aborts. All other drivers on device have the format stripped.

    the strip binary will do this for you. it is typically performed on the binary right after compiling it from source, or better yet, is built into a Makefile for the binary.
