    Unhappy Insmod: command not found in MAC OS terminal


    I might be in the wrong place, but this was the closest i was to the kernel. I want to compile a redboot kernel for a wireless router ... and that requires me to use the command insmod and modprobe.

    However using from my Mac OS 10.5.8 (Leopard) it says that the command not found. I have installed the gcc development suit and all other development suits available on the 10.5.8 cd but no luck.

    Help required.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    These commands have to be run on the device itself. Boot the device and connect into a terminal/command-line session on it. Then you should be able to use modprobe/insmod to install the driver module you need. Some drivers can be built either as modules or built into the kernel. The latter is preferable for device drivers on embedded devices such as this.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
