lib/modules read-only

So I'm on HoneyIce (latest version 3.2.7 I think) trying to get USB ethernet working. I have an ASIX AX88772 based adapter. I've found instructions on this page:

http://www.modaco.co...t-for-the-vega/

...but I need to move the downloaded "asix.ko" to to /system/lib/modules

I've spent an entire day trying to do this and have not been able to figure it out. I tried Root Explorer, and though the /system/ directory is writable, system/lib/modules isn't. Within "modules" nothing happens when I click "Mount R/W".

When I try and change permissions of the modules folder it says "modules permissions cannot be changed because the file system is read-only". If I try and change the owner it says "modules owner cannot be changed because the file system is read-only"

"adb push" is also giving me the same problem. ie "cannot copy ... to ... : Read-only file system"

I've tried a million other things, but nothing has made it possible to write to this directory. Can someone help here? How can I write to the lib/modules dir?

Many thanks

Hi, Muji12...

HoneyIce 3.2.7 RC3 (Chimera) uses SquashFS ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SquashFS )... meaning that all the files in /system/lib are actually stored in a single SquashFS file called lib.sfs - (loosely analagous to a .ZIP archive.)

To add asix.ko, would require a new updated lib.sfs (incorporating asix.ko) to be copied into /system - which I think can only be "built" on a Linux system...

...or at least, this is my understanding.

GED.

Try putting it in /vendor/lib/modules

Thanks guys. Scanno, unfortunately I can't seem to install the driver when it is there. insmod returns "can't insert... invalid module format'.

Can I ask - does your VegaCream support USB ethernet? Is it possible to get it working in it?

I guess that will need a kernel recompile with the driver enabled, if it is part of the linux kernel.

Ah, that's a little over my head I'm afraid. Thanks anyhow. Do you think we can look forward to USB ethernet support in any upcoming releases of VegaCream or any of the ICS ROMs? Or looking unlikely?
