View Full Version : [ubuntu] 'modprobe ath_pci' doesn't work with madwifi

I made and installed madwifi, but when I try:

modprobe ath_pci

I get:

FATAL: Error inserting ath_pci (/lib/modules/2.6.22-14-generic/net/ath_pci.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)

What does that mean>

You need to relink the module with the kernel.

$ sudo depmod -ae
$ sudo modprobe ath_pci

This is required especially if you compile a new module with the same name as an old one, in this case ath_pci.ko.
