error "cannot allocate memory"

We were trying to insert the ext2 module in kernel version .
The linux we are using is SuSE 10.1 . While inserting the ext2 module we got an error "Cannot allocate memory". Can you suggest us
why this error occured.

We have done following steps:
1. We copied ext3 on Desktop
2. make clean
3. make -C /../../../linux- M=$(pwd) modules
4. then ext2.ko is formed
5. insmod ext2.ko
6. then an error "cannot allocate memory" occured

When using insmod, it is not necessary to include the filename extension.

Try 'insmod ext2' without the .ko extension.


cannot, error, memory
