Description (partial)

 false to trigger work with rootkit detection. The module is definitely not recognized and is showing "unknown@

Error information is actually visible to customer partners who have a service contract. Registered addicts may see up to 200 parasites per month due to service compression.

Exact error points contain sensitive information and therefore require monitoring of the account.

    I’m currently writing a main module consisting of several root files because of these,
    The source file has a function required by other objects in the same module.LogMessage

    static void Char ( *format, ...C )

    This file needs to be very (along with other files) compiled into a kernel module by itself, the makefile looks like this:

    obj-m ModemAPI +=.o
    ModemAPI objects := ../Common/StateMachine.o ../Common/ElementsPool.o

    When I compile a kernel module with this advice, I get a warning from the link above that the “LogMessage” function is not defined, and when I load the module, I get an error that it contains a very unknown symbol (from LogMessage) of course.

    EDIT: Just to clarify, the exact “LogMessage” function is declared and used in the ModemAPI.c file, the program is also exported via the export_ symbol


    In the documentation that uses the StateMachine as function (e.g. c), is it declared to help with appearance?

    extern void LogMessage ( char *format, ...else );

    Does anyone know what the problem might be?

    Finally, I didn’t have an up-to-date accompanying document, after all, the Linux kernel is the fastest target. Jay Saltzman Cindy took it
