I, (mayhap rather foolishly) decided that I would try and compile
Interpersonal Computing's (www.ipc.de) driver for the Philips ScreenMachine
II. So I agreed to their NDA and downloaded the source. I then bravely
untarred the source, went into the subdirectory, and boldly typed 'make'. It
gave me this:
cc -O6 -D__KERNEL__ -DLINUX -DMODULE -Wall -c vmchrd.c -o vmchrd.o
In file included from /usr/include/asm/system.h:4,
/usr/include/linux/kernel.h:45: `printk' is an unrecognized format function
Looking at kernel.h, lines 44-45 we have:
NORET_TYPE void panic(const char * fmt, ...)
__attribute__ ((NORET_AND format (printf, 1, 2)));
This would seem to be the culprit, but further than that, I have no idea what
it means. Line 44 looks like a pretty standard function definition, but line
45 makes no sense to me.
So, any explanations or suggestions would be most helpful. I unfortunately
can't give out the actual source (though I'm trying to convince them to open
source it), but I'll answer any questions I can.
Thanks in advance.
