Subject: [gentoo-user] Kernel Modules
Date: Thu, 09 Jun 2011 10:53:12
1 Hello list,
3 I was wondering if it is possible to have a tool with which it would be
4 possible to have external modules installed for _all_ kernel versions in
5 my computer. Now I am using 2.6.38 kernel, but would like to try 2.6.39
6 and the thing is that I would like to have tp_smapi and phc-intel
7 modules in both kernels. Is it possible to have it without any serious
8 hacking?
10 I have only 3 ideas how I could achieve that:
11 * Making a custom ebuild, which would build the modules, but install
12 itself as a different package depending on the kernel version (eg
13 tp_smapi-2.6.39-gentoo)?
14 * Making a custom ebuild, which would build the modules for all kernel
15 versions in one go... (is this possible?)
16 * patching the gentoo-sources each time.
18 Is any of these solutions sensible?
20 Cheers,
21 Ignas
