Error inserting module.

Hi Guys,

I am having a problem while inserting a particular module. Following are some prints :-

Disabling lock debugging due to kernel taint
Load module stos_core [?] by insmod (pid 1230)
Load module stsys_ioctl [252] by insmod (pid 1234)
Load module stcommon_core [?] by insmod (pid 1245)
Load module sttbx_core [?] by insmod (pid 1249)
Load module stavmem_core [?] by insmod (pid 1253)
insmod: error inserting '/root/mohitd/HDK7108_7108/modules/stavmem_core.ko': -1
Operation not permitted

I am using STLinux-2.4 Distribution, kernel 2.6

I have changed the access permissions on all the .ko as rwx. Still I am getting the problem.

Can somebody please help me out.

How was the module made? It may have to do with some of the symbols, like:
error while inserting $PATH/wl.ko:error code -1:unknown symbol in $PATH/wl.ko
Anyway, I had that problem with my wireless module that one time (the module instance is underlined). Could it be that? I'm sorry that I can't offer anything else...maybe try to make the module again (when inserting, if you try, BE SURE IT'S REMOVED!). Hope this helps
