    modprobe error


    root@yos lasse # modprobe ipw2100
    WARNING: Error inserting ieee80211_crypt (/lib/modules/2.6.8.1-3/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ipw2100/ieee80211_crypt.ko): Invalid module format
    WARNING: Error inserting ieee80211 (/lib/modules/2.6.8.1-3/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ipw2100/ieee80211.ko): Invalid module format

    This is when trying to modprobe the newly made ipw2100 module. I haven't gotten error messages prior to this? Help please?

    Oh yeah, this is my first post! Hi!

    If you have a newer kernel you might need module utilities updated. I'm not sure how to do this in Yoper, but I think the problem has to do with your module utilies.
