rt61pci kernel module fails to load in -current "Invalid module format"
 
I have just upgraded my 13.0 install to -current everything seems to work smoothly :D except one of the more important drivers for me, my wireless card.
I haven't really got much more info other than running 'modprobe rt61pci' returns an 'Invalid module format' Error.

Don't use the huge kernel, use the generic + initrd.

I read the whole thing and didn't see a mention about the rt61pci module only some other one, anyway I tried what he suggested to no avail.

Switching kernels fixed nothing :( still the same error.
I'm not sure how to set up an initrd nor do I know what that is.....

You could not have switched to the generic kernel and not setup an initrd. Here is a how to http://slackware.oregonstate.edu/sla.../README.initrd.
Also a helper script exist in /usr/share/mkinitrd/mkinitrd_command_generator.sh that will give you a working command to run to create a initrd.

All hail XGizzmo, Creating the initrd and booting the generic kernel worked :)
Many thanks.
