Description Mike Kazantsev 2008-12-26 04:14:06 UTC
Happens because of missing dependency line in Kconfig, fixed by one-liner patch in linked upstream commit (7a5e6bc, Linus tree).

Can easily be fixed by manually enabling HWMON_VID in .config.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. make menuconfig
2. enable w83793
3. make

Actual Results:  
Crash with missing definitions error

Expected Results:  
Successful compilation and installation

Build process log:

  MODPOST vmlinux
  OBJCOPY vmlinux-stripped
  Building modules, stage 2.
  GZIP    vmlinuz
  MODPOST 141 modules

I believe hardware details are irrelevant here.

My mistake, sorry.
I also need fix from bug 231881 for both .20 and .21 sources. I find it strange that 231881 is marked as FIXED, while bug still exists, but oh well...

Dropped version. Try .29 or .31 :)
