compiling and installing ath9k throws out alx and vice versa

Postby owa on Wed May 01, 2013 12:23 pm

Hello,

Ive recently compiled kernel 3.9 from kernel.org and i was able to boot my system. Im running Mint 14 with Cinnamon on an Asus F201E, so far so good. All of my hardware gets detected properly except for my eth0 and wlan0 IF. What I did was i looked for the latest compat-drivers pack here (compat-drivers-3.9-rc4-2-su): http://drvbp1.linux-foundation.org/~mcg ... t-drivers/

I downloaded that pack and made the drivers with ./scripts/driver-select (alx|ath9k). They compile and "make install" fine, but if I have made ath9k already and then try to install alx, it will kick out ath9k from my kernel apparently, and vice versa.

Im not sure how to debug this problem and I am thus looking for any help, to get guided into the right direction. Thanks!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Ive fixed my problem by recompiling the kernel. Apparently there is an ath9k module built inside, which i activated (via make menuconfig) after that i only had to install alx once and now both work.
