Hi there,

I've been trying to compile in the gspca module (webcam), using the following steps:

GIT'ed the source down
Copied /boot/config.gz into source directory, unzipped, renamed to .config
Ran, 'make menuconfig', selected V4L2 and gspca modules.
Did a 'make modules'
Copied the .ko files to /lib/modules/3.1.9+/kernel/drivers/media/video directories.

When I tried to do a modprobe, gspca_main, I get the following error:

FATAL: Error inserting gspca_main (/lib/modules/3.1.9+/kernel/drivers/media/video/gspca/gspca_main.ko): Invalid module format

I'm a bit stuck now. Can anyone give me any pointers on how to continue?

If it helps, looking at the modinfo of gspca_main, I get the following:

filename: /lib/modules/3.1.9+/kernel/drivers/media/video/gspca/gspca_main.ko
version: 2.13.0
license: GPL
description: GSPCA USB Camera Driver
author: Jean-François Moine <http://moinejf.free.fr>
srcversion: F5A8F963C5415A8B2D1B316
depends: videodev
vermagic: 3.1.9+ mod_unload modversions ARMv6

Thanks!

Yup, sure did. Sorry, forgot that from the list of steps taken :-)

Try loading the module a little more forceful with "modprobe -f modulename" or "insmod /path/to/your/module.ko"
Check dmesg if it still fails.

Cheers Max,

I finally see some signs of something!

doing insmod, I get the following message in syslog:

gspca_main: no symbol version for module_layout

Something to go on at least :-)

Hello. I've been trying to get 3G USB modem to work with Raspberry Pi and Debian, but I keep getting this error in /var/log/messages

How could I have this feature?

I think you probably need the CONFIG_PPP_FILTER option enabled in your kernel.

Does this mean that the kernel must be recompiled?

Would like to see kernel support for ebtables if possible.

It does. IMO the Debian kernel doesn't seem to be configured very appropriately.

gspca "kernel module is invalid" managed to eliminate errors?
I have same problem.
