View Full Version : [ubuntu] Driver or kernel problem?

March 26th, 2012, 07:54 PM
I got error when installing a touchsecreen linux 3.0.0-12 driver in ubuntu 11.10 (which has 3.0.0-16)

# insmod /user/home/Desktop/zinFrameServer/zinFrameDriver.ko

got the following error:
insmod: error inserting /user/home/Desktop/zinFrameServer/zinFRameDriver.ko: -1 Invalid module format

the same error with:
# insmod /user/home/Desktop/zinFrameServer/VirtualInputDeviceDriver.ko

Is it a newbie installation fault or should I downgrade the kernel? How?
Note: ubuntu 11.04 has a lower kernel so I should stick to this version but lower the kernelís last digit from 16 to 12.

Try modprobe instead. But first: man modprobe
