insmod invalid module format


Hi,

Does anyone know what can cause this error?

Code:
# insmod qla2xxx_conf.ko ; insmod qla2xxx.ko ; insmod qla2300.ko
insmod: error inserting 'qla2xxx_conf.ko': -1 Invalid module format
insmod: error inserting 'qla2xxx.ko': -1 Invalid module format
insmod: error inserting 'qla2300.ko': -1 Invalid module format
I get this when I try to load the driver for QLogic HBA on a SuSe 9 system. I compiled the driver on the system. Here are some info about the system:

Code:
# uname -a
Linux linux 2.6.5-7.97-default #1 Fri Jul 2 14:21:59 UTC 2004 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
kernel source:

Code:
linux:/usr/src # pwd
/usr/src
linux:/usr/src # ls -l
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root  16 Jan 18 10:05 linux -> linux-2.6.5-7.97
drwxr-xr-x  20 root root 744 Jan 20 09:50 linux-2.6.5-7.97
Does it matter the running kernel is 2.6.5-7.97-default and the kernel source is linux-2.6.5-7.97? It is the source that came with the installation CDs. Any help is appricated.

Yea, it solves most problems and maked the system run MUCH faster. It is amazning what the optimizing features of compiling locally (Specifically selecing processor type and disableing the overhead of generic x86 support). Not only that but you can make it MUCH smaller by getting rid of unneeded features.

It was compiled on the local system, but I found the problem. I was using the SMP configuration instead of Default, I used
Code:
dmesg
to find the problem. Thanks for all your input.
