insmod error version magic


I am trying to compile module for android. When I compile for the emulator I can get it working. However there are problems when compiling it for the device. The module compiles properly, when I try to install it I get this error.

insmod: init_module 'ioctl.ko' failed (Exec format error)

this is the dmesg out put,

ioctl: version magic '2.6.35.7-I900XXJVP-CL264642 preempt mod_unload ARMv7 ' should be '2.6.35.7-I9000XXJVP-CL264642 preempt mod_unload ARMv7

On some forums it was said the problem is in the make file. What places should I change in the make file(if the problem is in make file)?

Thanks in advance

Found the solution:

I edited the make file's from EXTRAVERSION = .7 to EXTRAVERSION = .7-I900XXJVP-CL264642 that is why I got the wrong error msg in the dmesg !

You should make it #EXTRAVERSION = .7

and in the .config file find CONFIG_LOCALVERSION. Change this to CONFIG_LOCALVERSION=-I900XXJVP-CL264642

It should solve the problem(at least it solved for me)
