Thread: Driver deinstallieren

  1. #1

    Default Driver deinstallieren

    Hallo,
    ich versuche eine Driver für meine Sierre Wireless card (embedded) zu installieren. Dazu gibt es auch eine Anleitung von Sierra. Bevor nun der neue Driver installiert wird, soll mit modinfo sierra geprüft werden, ob bereits ein alter Driver vorhanden ist. Dies scheint bei mir der Fall zu sein, sodass ich nun mit rmmod sierra diesen deinstallieren will. Das geht jedoch nicht.

    Hier die beiden Bildschirmausgaben von modinfo sierra sowie rmmod sierra:

    Ich bin leider echt kein Linux-Held, um ehrlich zu sein, habe ich von openSuse11.0 gehört und dachte mir, das Linux doch eine tolle Sache ist und es nun gegenüber Windows ausprobieren will. Also bitte ich schon mal um nachsicht, wenn ich mich hier total blöd angestellt haben sollte.

    Danke!!!

    * Grossmann200,

    rmmod entfernt nur den geladenen Treiber, deinstalliert ihn aber nicht. Falls Du ihn also nicht vorher mit modprobe geladen hast, ist die Ausgabe von rmmod normal.

    Was ist das fr ein Laptop? Es ist wirklich sehr selten, dass man einen Netzwerkkartentreiber vom Hersteller braucht.

    BTW, es wre besser frs Resultat, wenn Du auf Englisch posten knntest. Die wenigsten hier sprechen Deutsch. Falls Du mit Englisch berhaupt nicht klarkommst, kann ich Dir eines der deutschen Foren empfehlen, z.B. www.suseusers.de oder www.linux-club.de

    Gru

    First of all sorry for not writing in English.

    The Laptop is a Fujitus Siemens Q2010.
    No, the driver was not installed manually by me with mdprobe. During installing openSuse11.0 I used Auto-Configuration. Perhaps during this auto-configuration procedure, the old or wrong (?)driver was installed.

    Anyhow, I did not know that there is a difference between installing and loading a driver. All I know, was that the Sierra guidline says, if mdinfo shows there is a driver, deinstall it before installing the new one.

    And we are talking about a broadband UMTS card or something like that? Because from what I see, your machine should have an Intel wireless NIC.

    These are normally kernel modules which come with the current driver and aren't installed. You can compile the driver into the kernel or compile it as a module and load it when needed.
    You shouldn't need to uninstall the driver before using a new one.

    Hi Uwe,
    yes, we are speaking about an UMTS card. I bought this laptop, since it was once of the first ones, who had an integrated UMTS-card. I put the SIM-Card in a slot below the battery pack. Of course it has a wireless-system too, but my problems are related to the UMTS-card.

    Okay. I will try to compile the files I got from Sierra, and keep you informed about the result.

    Thanks a lot for your replies. I really appreciate!!!

    Dear Uwe,

    I have just tried to compile the files. Here are the lines from the terminal:

    linux-xswx:/home/Alexander/Linux_driver_Sierra_wireless/v1.2.10b_Kernel2.6.25 #
    dir

    make -C /lib/modules/2.6.25.5-1.1-pae/build SUBDIRS=/home/Alexander/Linux_driver_Sierra_wireless/v1.2.10b_Kernel2.6.25 modules
    make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.25.5-1.1-obj/i386/pae'
    make[1]: *** Keine Regel, um »modules« zu erstellen. Schluss.

    make: *** [default] Fehler 2
    linux-xswx:/home/Alexander/Linux_driver_Sierra_wireless/v1.2.10b_Kernel2.6.25 #

    No glue, what I have made now wrong.

    if you don't have the kernel sources installed, do this. Then:

    Open a terminal, become root with "su", then
    cd /usr/src/linux
    make cloneconfig
    make prepare-all

    Finally try to compile the driver again.

    hmmm .... I really feel like a dummy. I have installed openSuse 11.0 just from a bootable CD ... how can I install the Kernel? Do I have to copy it from the CD or can I do this with YAST?

    Sorry for bothering, but I really do not know.
