insmod bcm5700 results in "module cannot be found"...
insmod bcm5700.o results in "bcm5700.o: init_module: No such device"

Did I forget to compile something in the Kernel ?

Kind regards,

  Shouldnt the command just be "insmod bcm5700" not "insmod bcm5700.o"

  I'm not familiar with Debian and have only done this in Red Hat Linux, but "insmod bcn5700" always worked for me.

    Distrib: Debian
    Kernel: 2.4.20
    Server: DELL Poweredge 2650 with Broadcom Gigabit Adapter

    I just compiled a new 2.4.20-kernel successfully (thanks to Matt Domsch). I compiled the BCM5700-driver from "bcm5700-source_2.0.32-1_all" to bcm5700.o (success).

    When I try to "insmod bcm5700.o", the server responds:
    "bcm5700.o: init_module: No such device"

    Where did I go wrong ?

      I'm trying to recompile my Debian-Kernel to 2.4.20, but I receive this error:

      VFS: Cannot open root device "803" or 08:03 
      Please append a correct "root=" boot option 
      Kernel panic: VFS: unable to mount root fs on 08:03 

      I presume the problem is with AACRAID... can someone give me a clue how I can get this into my Kernel ?  Is it in "make menuconfig" ?  Which option is it ?

      Kind regards,
