    pclos 2007 - modprobe does not recognize my module


    I want to get my USB to ethernet device working (called ST 268 i believe). I got a driver dm9601 which is working fine in Debian etch. But i cant get it to work in PCLinux OS 2007. I compiled the module in PCL and copied the dm9601.ko file to /lib/modules/2.6.... /kernel/drivers/net folder. I also created in entry in /etc/modprobe.conf file (instead of /etc/modules as in debian). The entry was
    "alias eth1 dm9601"

    However the module does not load. I get a message saying "Fatal: Module dm9601 not found" in /var/log/messages.

    Can someone please help. Where should i keep the ko file and should i make any additional entry too??

    Also... all the other modules in the directory were ko.gz. So i tried to zip the dm9601.ko to dm9601.ko.gz also. But that did not work too...
