Problem with kqemu in slackware64-current since kernel

Hi to all,

Since I upgraded my kernel do in Slackware64 I cannot get the (newly compiled) kqemu module to load. It gives:
FATAL: Error inserting kqemu (/lib/modules/ Invalid module format
I use the Slackbuild script It worked fine with and still works on on slackware-current (32-bits) on another machine.

Any idea where to look for an answer? Googling just told me to check the header files, but all is there.

Just out of curiosity, what format are all the normal modules in? I know the installer a while back had them all in *.ko.gz. I haven't updated yet, so I don't know.

You can try /sbin/modinfo on the module and check the vermagic version reported. Apparently this has to match the kernel when trying to load the module.

@bgeddy: Thanks, you showed me the light

I had compiled this custom kernel on June 18th, between the two updates of the kernel-headers package.
I just compiled a new kernel, recompiled kqemu and everything is fine again!
