hi there.

I am trying to install a driver as a module and have come across quite a problem with depmod. First when compiling the driver the makefile runs depmod, which returns a segmentation fault after displaying this line.
'xftw starting at /lib/modules/mtd lstat on /lib/modules/mtd failed'
Well the driver is for a wireless network device and i have recently found out that my kernel isn't compiled to support them so, attempting to kill two birds with one stone, i had a go at recompiling it with NET_RADIO turned on and low and behold I get a segmentation fault when doing a,
'make bzImage modules modules_install'
I cant see any way forward that doesn't include re-installing another distro where depmod actually works.
Has anybody else had a similar problem to this or can anybody help me shed some light please.
