kernel-module version mismatch

I compile the module on a SuSE 8.0, but when I do insmod <My_module.o> I get a "kernel-module version mismatch ... My_module.o was compiled for kernel version 2.4.19-4GB while this kernel is version 2.4.19-64GB-SMP"

My Makefile gets the kernel version by doing a "uname -r", yet I'm not sure why I get this message when I install the module ?

Any help is appreciated.

Thats most likely why your getting that error, precompiled module for a kernel must match the kernel you are using. Have you tried just downloading the module and installing or compiling it from source perhaps?

The module I'm referring to is mine ... and I compile it for the stock kernel, yet when I install it i see the problem.
