    Linux and submount

    After switching to 2.6 I tried to install submount, but the compilation ot the subfs module gives the following error:

    bash-3.1$ make
    make -C /lib/modules/ SUBDIRS=/home/freeman/submount-0.9/submount-0.9/subfs-0.9 modules
    make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-'
    CC [M] /home/freeman/submount-0.9/submount-0.9/subfs-0.9/subfs.o
    /home/freeman/submount-0.9/submount-0.9/subfs-0.9/subfs.c: In function `subfs_lookup':

    make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-'
    make: *** [default] Error 2

    Any ideas would be highly appreciated.

    On submount page,

    it is said that:

    So I guess it is possible that you'll experience some difficulties...

    For more installation details, look here on how to install it "manually":

    I have installed it manually from source following the instructions in the INSTALL file, and they are exactly the same as in the Gentoo wiki. Did the same when I was still using 2.4 and it worked flawlessly. There's gotta be a way for it to work in newer 2.6 kernels as SuSE Linux 10.1 for example comes with submount(modified in some way i guess).

    btw thank you for your time, I really appreciate it.
