Default Problems installing windrvr.o in Red Hat EL3...

I run into a problem when I 'make;make install' the linuxdrivers.tgz
file from Xilinx. Any solutions? I've read about 2.6.x updates and
such, but I have a 2.4.x kernel.

Hi Martin,

I figured out the problem. The driver that Xilinx releases isn't the
best, and very fragile. It compiled today with no issues, but
yesterday it didn't.

The windrvr.o didn't want to build due to an error with rights of the
files. I just chmod 777 the whole directory and re-made it and it
works.
