I got around the failing insmod by using a forced modprobe. However I realized all my efforts may be wasted on the reset button (rstbtn.ko), an I2C button like here.
The reset button is not that important to me…
I want the WD hardware service daemon (wdhws) and other binaries in /opt/wd/bin such as temperature monitor (wdtms) and power monitor in my other kernel.
@dswv42 Did you get the WD temperature and power management binary blobs working in your custom kernel?
I copied all the files used in the /etc/init.d/S14wdhws script and the wdhws logs in syslog
wdhws: starting wdhw service with config_file=/etc/wd/sprite-wdhw.xml
However it shuts down without any error or warning
The other services need the wdhws to be running…
Shows that all libraries have a match, however most of them come from the newer kernel.
