i2c_core


If I insert modules in my Slackware 11.0 with 2.6.17.13 I get the following errors:

WARNING: Error inserting i2c_core (/lib/modules/2.6.17.13/kernel/drivers/i2c/i2c-core.ko): Invalid module format
WARNING: Error inserting i2c_algo_bit (/lib/modules/2.6.17.13/kernel/drivers/i2c/algos/i2c-algo-bit.ko): Invalid module format
WARNING: Error inserting firmware_class (/lib/modules/2.6.17.13/kernel/drivers/base/firmware_class.ko): Invalid module format

How do I fix that?

Have you recompiled the kernel and forgot to do the modules install part of it? This happens when there is a version mismatch between the kernel and the kernel modules.

No, I installed huge26.s during install and afterwards installed the modules from /extra.

The error happens because i2c-core is already enabled in the huge26 kernel, along with lots of other stuff. I also came across this problem after trying to load some i2c modules for lm_sensors to use. This isn't the case with the 2.6.18 from /testing, which I've installed and seems to be running really well.
