Debian 3.0 (Woody)

mvDELTA, mvGAMMA-G, mvSIGMA-SLC, mvSIGMA-SLG, mvSIGMA-SQ, mvTITAN-C16, mvTITAN-C8, mvTITAN-CL, mvTITAN-DIG, mvTITAN-G1, mvTITAN-RGB/G4, pcIMAGE-SC, pcIMAGE-SDIG, pcIMAGE-SG/SGVS, pcIMAGE-SRGB

1. Ensure that all of the following packets are installed:

svgalibg1 svgalib binaries
svgalibga-dev svgalib development
svgalibg1-bin

kernel-source-2.4.18 kernel sources that match the version of the kernel you are using (possibly a different version number for your kernel).

libncurses ncurses library
libncurses5-dev ncurses development

2. You will find the kernel sources in the directory /usr/src but they are still packed after installation.

2.1 Unpack them in this directory using a command like this:
tar xvjf kernel-source-2.4.18.tar.bz2 (possibly a different version number for your kernel)

2.2 Make a link to this newly-created directory in /usr/src called linux:
/usr/src/linux -> kernel-source-2.4.18 (possibly a different version number for your kernel)

2.3 Copy the kernel configuration for the kernel you are running into the new directory
and rename it .config (don"t miss out the "." at the start of the filename).
The current kernel configuration can usually be found in the /boot directory after installing a Debian standard kernel.

2.4 Enter make menuconfig and then exit the configuration program without changing the configuration. Save the configuration on exit.

2.5 Check the file called Makefile to see that the correct version number and suffix are included e.g.
VERSION = 2
PATCHLEVEL = 4
SUBLEVEL = 18
EXTRAVERSION =-bf2.4.
As a check try entering uname -r to see the version number including the suffix. If needed, change the Makefile and repeat 2.4.

2.6 Now enter make dep to create the dependencies.

2.7 Create the symbolic link: /lib/modules/2.4.18-bf2.4/build -> /usr/src/linux
substituting the correct kernel version + suffix that is displayed by uname -r.
3 Now follow the instructions supplied with the driver for compiling and installing the kernel modules and the test programs.
