| The driver is working great for 2.4.x Linux and is modified to reflect all SCSI layer change in 2.5.72. I have RH9.0 and installed 2.5.72 on the same system. Driver compiled under 2.5.72 OK. The module utilities are upgraded to 0.9.13-pre.

| What is new requirement for module building and loading with "insmod" on 2.5.72 compare with the requirement in 2.4.x?

Please use the correct makefile for mymodule.
See linux/Documentation/modules.txt and
linux/Documentation/kbuild/makefile.txt.
In general, it only takes a few lines to build a module that is
maintained outside of the kernel source tree in 2.5/2.6.

Here is an example of one that is probably longer than it needs
to be:

# makefile for oops_test/dump*.c
# Randy Dunlap, 2003-03-12
# usage:
# cd /path/to/kernel/source && make SUBDIRS=/path/to/source/oops_test/ modules

CONFIG_OOPS_TEST=m

obj-m := dump_test.o

# dump_test-objs := dump_test.o

clean-files := *.o

# fini;
