qlogic HBA on slackware 64?


Hi,

Trying to get the qla2xxx module loaded on 64bit slackware 13.1 system but keep getting errors:
# modprobe -v qla2xxx
Code:
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.33.4/kernel/drivers/scsi/scsi_transport_fc.ko 
WARNING: Error inserting scsi_transport_fc (/lib/modules/2.6.33.4/kernel/drivers/scsi/scsi_transport_fc.ko): Invalid argument
FATAL: Error inserting qla2xxx (/lib/modules/2.6.33.4/kernel/drivers/scsi/qla2xxx/qla2xxx.ko): Invalid argument
The module is included in the kernel-modules-2.6.33.4-x86_64-1 package and looks like it is configured as a module in the kernel:
Code:

I found both of these modules in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and have commented them out. Still getting the same error. Is there some kind of conflict I need to look for? Do I need to create a qla2xxx file under /etc/modprobe.d that passes arguments to the module?

If anybody can point me in the right direction, it would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Dan
