Description Bernie Innocenti 2004-01-04 21:15:05 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.1; Linux 2.6.0-1.23custom; X11; , en) (KHTML, like Gecko)

Description of problem:
The kernel module fglrx.ko compiled from
fglrx-glc22-4.3.0-3.7.0.i386.rpm (available from ATI)
works fine with these kernels:

  2.6.0-1.103 (Arjan)
  2.6.0-1.23 (Fedora)

insmodding in 2.6.0-1.109 produces a OOPS for NULL
pointer dereference (sorry, can't provide more detail
right now).

My guess is that it has something to do with changes in
include/linux or include/asm-i386, because I've seen the
very same OOPS in -1.23 using fglrx.ko built with the
-1.109 headers.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. build and install kernel-source-2.6.0-1.109
2. download and install fglrx-glc22-4.3.0-3.7.0.i386.rpm
3. build module in /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/2.6.x
4. install module
5. insmod fglrx

I'm sorry but I don't care if binary only modules can be linked in the
kernel or not.
