Smile Problems loading module i2c

Hi all,
I'm is trying to install a tv card Flyvideo 3000 with a microcontroller Philips saa7134. I've already know that is full supported and I was seen this guide but when I try to load the i2c module I get this warning:

root@localhost:/etc/modprobe.d# modprobe saa7134
WARNING: Error inserting i2c_core (/lib/modules/ Invalid module format
I do not know how to deal with this warning error.
Any help I would be very grateful.

well I do not have your hw but can you confirm that you have successfully booted a recompiled kernel....based on that guide to have the correct modules?

2) if you have the kernel sources you will also find
/usr/src/...//Documentation/video4linux//README.saa7134 which offers extra advice.


Pick up videodev + v4l2 patches from
Configure, build, install + boot the new kernel. You'll need at least
these config options:


Type "make" to build the driver now. "make install" installs the
driver. "modprobe saa7134" should load it. Depending on the card you
might have to pass card=<nr> as insmod option, check CARDLIST for
valid choices.
