Message: 53374    Thanks for the update.

The link  which you updated is this:

http://docs.blackfin.uclinux.org/doku.php?id=linux-kernel:module_parameters&s=module%20param

The one which I gave goes to a "Topic does not exist"

 

I made sure I have the linux/module.h file include in the code.

But for eg.

module_param(yres, int, 0666);  (where #define YRES 240 ,static int yres = YRES)

throws this error:

error: size of array ‘type name’ is negative

 

Any help with the error.

Thanks.

Message: 53379    please read the documentation for the module_param() macro.  the last field is the userspace permissions.
