HOW TO: Install RealPort (source rpm) in OpenSuSE 12.3 Following a Kernel Upgrade

First, remove any existing RealPort driver:

rpm -e dgrp

Before installing the new driver, do the following series of makes:

cd /usr/src/linux
make clean
make oldconfig
make prepare
make scripts

The specific name of the kernel path may need to be adjusted.  In the examle below the path contains the subdirectory linux-3.7.10-1.16-obj:

ln -s /usr/src/linux-3.7.10-1.16-obj/i386/desktop/Module.symvers /usr/src/linux-3.7.10-1.16/Module.symvers
ln -s /usr/src/linux-3.7.10-1.16-obj/i386/desktop/include/generated/autoconf.h  /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/include/autoconf.h
ln -s /usr/include/ncurses/panel.h  /usr/include/panel.h

cd /usr/src/packages/RPMS/(arch)
rpmbuild --rebuild 40002086_(ver).src.rpm
rpm -Uvh dgrp-(ver).i586.rpm
modprobe dgrp

Where (arch) represents your system architecture (i.e. i386, x86_64, etc...) and (ver) represents the driver version.

The following command will confirm whether the dgrp kernel module load was successful:

lsmod | grep dgrp
