Re: [dm-devel] creating a dm-linear.ko in a current kernel.



Solved my own issue methinks, the name of the module that i am finding in drivers/md/ is linear.ko, not dm-linear.ko. that was unexpected. i note further that there are other non 'dm- decorated' lkms in md as well, such as multipath, faulty, raid0, etc.

is there an implication associated with things decorated with dm- vs things not decorated with dm- in the md directory?

tnx!

Subject: [dm-devel] creating a dm-linear.ko in a current kernel.

Hello;

I have a linear device that i am attempting to harness to device mapper.

My expectation that i developed based on my reading was that I could start from a dm-linear.c => dm-linear.ko and go from there.

But dm-linear.c gets linked into dm-mod.ko, not dm-linear.ko.

Has dm-linear always been part of dm-mod? i see some stuff on the net that implies the existence of dm-linear.ko, but i have poked around in menuconfig and i can find no specific entry to create it.

Any suggestions as to how to proceed would be greatly appreciated.

tnx!

johnu
