Hi there
I just compiled my very first linux module..
I can load it using insmode, but it is not found during the boot process
also modprobe does not find it

this is what I did:
mkdir -p /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/n_gsm
cp n_gsm.ko  /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/n_gsm

and aded a line
to /etc/modules

are there more steps I need to execute?
