Subjectmodversion.h improvement suggestion
Date
Hello,
I tried to compile a device driver module and got the error that
'modversion.h' cannot be found. My first questions were:
Are the include paths ok?

Uses this driver code obsolete kernel stuff?
Has SuSE forgotten something to install?
Then I started a google search for 'modversion.h' and noticed that this was a
common problem. And after a while I found the solution -> modversion.h is an
automatically generated file.

#error You have not generated the module versions. You have to ...

This hint may save some time for those who are not so fit in kernel issues.

Ciao
Sebastian
