Invalid Module format error in Linux kernel 2.6.28
Posted on 2009-07-04
I have compiled open source USB driver for Fedora 8, when I Insert the driver module .ko file on
Fedora 9 using insmod driver.ko i get the error Invalid Module format error ?
why is this coming when i am inserting/deploying on higher version i.e Fedora 9 and compiled driver.ko on Fedora 8 ?
1.) Do i need to compile the driver along with kernel source where ever driver.ko is deployed ?
2.) I there any way at least for the minor number version change the driver.ko will insert ?
3.) It is not a good solution in every machine driver source is compiled, infact some of the client
machines doesn't have compilers and kernel sources installed
