Everyone,

I finally got Debian squeeze on my LS-CHL V2 by installing 1.37 mod, removing the hard drive, and debootstrapping. It's worked for months now.

Problem: I need to install a USB to Serial adaptor based on the old pl2303 chip, but I cannot compile the modules for it.

Can anyone steer me or tell me how to do this? Or does anyone have pre-compiled modules for this (usbserial.ko and pl2303.ko)?

Jason

Because you didn't tell us which kernel you are using, get this more general hint:
* get the source of your kernel
* get the ".config" your kernel was built with
* get gcc and build-essentials on your LS
* use the makefile and the target "menuconfig" to configure the kernel build
* take care that the two modules you need are indeed compiled as modules
* put the two modules into the directory with all the other modules on your LS
* try to modprobe the two modules (evtl. you need a depmod -a beforehand)

Sorry kenatonline,

I had thought the info about using Shonk's firmware 1.37mod1 explained things

I believe the kernel in Shonk's 1.37 mod1 is the stock kernel (hope I am wrong); I didn't think anyone had a vanilla kernel running on this processor yet (again, hope I am wrong). I can not find any kernel sources, modules, or kernel headers to work with. The pl2303.c/h and usbserial.c/h files are not on my machine. All the modules I build and insmod say, "...Invalid Module Format"

uname -r = 2.6.31.8-svn22059

http://forum.buffalo.nas-central.org/viewtopic.php?f=68&t=21865

Can you point me to the sources for this kernel? Or to an example of how to run a different kernel?

With gratefulness,
Jason

Should be the current kernel from Buffalo:
http://opensource.buffalo.jp/gpl_storage.html

There are some success stories for 2.6.30 kernels running on LS boxes.
Even one for 3.0 I saw somewhere (sorry, can't remember where).
