Error inserting mac80211 module
I modify a header file in include/linux and then "make modules" until the end. After that I "make modules_install".
And then I try to copy the .ko file to /lib/modules/3.5.0 directory, after that I remove the older module
and load new module
modprobe -v mac80211
but after that the error occured "FATAL: Error inserting mac80211 (/lib/modules/3.5.0+/kernel/net/mac80211/mac80211.ko): Invalid argument"
what should I do? T_T
I usually use that method (from copy to modprobe) and there is no problem but today this problem occured.
Need your help
Re: Error inserting mac80211 module
Why are you installing the mac module this way rather than letting whatever wireless module you are installing pull it down from the repository as a dependency? If you build the module yourself, it is possible that it is either using mismatched dependencies in its build, or choking on mismatched libraries afterwards. I.e. 3.7 module on 3.5 libraries. We have no idea what version of mac module you were building (or why).
