This means that you have hermes.o and orinoco.o from the kernel (that's
one version), orinoco_cs.o comes from pcmcia-cs (presumably another
version), and then you install orinoco-0.12b compiled against the kernel
on top of that.
Perhaps that's the most perversive configuration. I could not even
imagine it :-)
The orinoco driver as distributed by David Gibson is primarily written for
testing and for integration into the kernel and pcmcia-cs. I tried to
reinforce the Makefile for occasional users who want stand-alone
compilation, but no Makefile can possibly outsmart everybody :-(
Improvements in the documentation and further reinforcement of the
Makefile are long overdue, and will be done time permitting. Sorry for
Until then, please do following:
1) Recompile the kernel without PCMCIA and without any Orinoco/Hermes
2) Remove all your modules and reinstall them by "make modules_install"
3) Copy all *.c and *.h files from the new orinoco driver to pcmcia-cs
sources, directory "wireless".
4) Recompile and install pcmcia-cs.
