Thumbs up writing drivers for kernel 2.4.20-8


Hi All,

I was trying to compile a simple program and insert using insmod on
kernel 2.4.20-8 (the redhat machine we had). I wrote a simple print
program and i compliled it using
$cc -c helloworld.c
to generate the object file and i tried to insert the object using
$/sbin/insmod helloworld.o

And it gave the following error message

helloworld.o: kernel-module version mismatch
******* helloworld.o was compiled for kernel version 2.4.20
******* while this kernel is version 2.4.20-8.

Pls help me solve this issue.I searched google and i could not find.

Thanks and Kind Regards,
Vinay
