But these files are not in it.

It the 766 there are these files ... it's for that but itsn't on this mirror

:(

do you know where i can find the old kernel ?

OK, here's a better idea. Build the module for the latest update kernel, 2.6.11-1.14_FC3.


You'll need to be booted into that kernel, and have the SRPM for that kernel, kernel-2.6.11-1.14_FC3.src.rpm.

The first step is to build yourself an RPM build area:

  $ cd ~
  $ mkdir BUILD
  $ cd BUILD
  $ mkdir SOURCES SPECS RPMS SRPMS BUILD
  $ cd ~

Create yourself a file ~/.rpmmacros containing the following 2 lines:

%packager	Manu Linux Lookit <linux lookit org>
%_topdir	%(echo $HOME)/BUILD

Next, install the kernel source RPM into your build area:

$ rpm -Uvh kernel-2.6.11-1.14_FC3.src.rpm

Next, unpack the kernel sources in your build area:

  $ cd ~/BUILD/SPECS
  $ rpmbuild -bp --target=noarch kernel-2.6.spec

Finally, go back to your driver area, build and install the module:

  $ cd ~/sis18x_2.6.10_1.00.00
  $ make SCSI_SRC=~/BUILD/BUILD/kernel-2.6.11/linux-2.6.11/drivers/scsi
  $ make install

I see that the 2.6.11-1.14_FC3 kernel already contains a sata_sis.ko module; is the one on the SIS website different?

P.S. Please don't top-post on this mailing list.

Paul.
