I have invested huge amounts of time into this and I don’t know what else to do.
I am a student working on my final project. Chose the beaglebone because we needed an embedded device to control two servos, communicate over USB with a camera and maintain a wifi direct link with an Android phone. I posed the question previously and maybe wasn’t clear!topic/beagleboard/zmDmxESW8tE

The issue still persists.
So based on several posts i have tried rebuilding the kernel module from the source provided for the rtl8192cu
I’m running angstrom 3.2.14. on the beagle bone.I’m trying to compile my own drivers and now I get this error when making the driver

I really need help with this and will do the legwork. I don’t have a lot of experience with cross compiling and the arm. The whole point of the project was to break out of my safe little shell using pic and x86

Try commenting this line out of your conf/local.conf:
   INHERIT += "rm_work"

Then, rebuild the kernel:
   % bitbake virtual/kernel -c cleansstate; bitbake virtual/kernel

Then build your module as above.

thanks gary…the file has compiled, but kernel won’t boot… I’ve started compiling another kernel to see where it goes

you don’t have to clean up everything, just go to the folder that contains
/bin/sh: scripts/basic/fixdep: No such file or directory

then make it for host code. because this code will be executed in host OS
not arm.

I did sucessfully boot beagleboard from scratch on angstrom repository.

Or just write a recipe that does 'inherit module', then you don't need to worry about anything like that.
