Question Loading Kernel Modules


I need to load some modules into my kernel but the procedures I have found don't seem to work. I have heard that the way to do it is to type or
insmod module.ko
modprobe module.ko
. However when I do this it tells me that the module is invalid. I am using kernel with Slackware 10.2 and the modules come from MADwifi. Any help would be appricated.

It sounds like that module won't work with your OS.

If you're using a binary .ko, either:

1. Find a binary that matches your kernel

... or, perhaps even better ...

2. Download the module source, make sure you have your own kernel source, and build the module yourself.

'Hope that helps .. PSM
