Problem with module i2c-core in Slackware 12.0
I've been trying to install module em28xx in a Slackware 12.0 installation that has been operating for several years. This is the em28xx that is part of the Slackware 12.0 distribution itself (kernel 126.96.36.199).
Unfortunately, although em28xx is fine, modprobe has a problem with dependent module i2c-core, which is generating an "Invalid module format" message. The system is using the generic Slackware 12.0 kernel, not the huge kernel.
Any suggestions on how to fix this problem so that em28xx will function correctly? Thanks!
