    Okay, let's try it just a little at a time. The problem is, I'm not familiar with all that you did before so I've got to know that before we do anything. I need you to post here, the output of:
    Code:
    uname -a
    This will tell us what kernel you are now running under. Whatever it is, you need to have corresponding entries (the number is the same) in /usr/src/kernels and /lib/modules. So let's also see the outputs of:
    Code:
    ls /usr/src/kernels
    and
    Code:
    ls /lib/modules
    While we're at it, let's also see:
    Code:
    ls /boot
    Post the output of those commands here, then we'll take the next step.

    From the command line as root:
    Code:
    yum install kernel-devel
    When done, check in /usr/src/kernels and see if 2.6.20-2931.fc7xen is there.

    Error Summary
    -------------

    even after the updates none of the information you asked for before changed and i still can't do modprobe ath_pci because of "Invalid module format"

    i have an idea what if i moved:

    /lib/modules/2.6.20-2925.9.fc7xen
    /lib/modules/2.6.20-2931.fc7xen
    /lib/modules/2.6.21-1.3194.fc7
    out of the way so that maybe theres no choice but to read my new kernel or would that mess something up?

    Don't do that, it will most likely mess things up.
    All that message is saying is, you already have kernel-devel installed, it's a newer version.
    You should be able to install the driver now. Give it a try.

    well i'm not going to i know how important kernels are it was just a thought but i can install drivers i just keep getting "Invalid module format" when i try to load them like I install NDISwrapper got the driver install no problems there at all then i went:

    [root@localhost ~]# modprobe ndiswrapper
    FATAL: Error inserting ndiswrapper (/lib/modules/2.6.20-2931.fc7xen/misc/ndiswrapper.ko): Invalid module format

    yeah. so i'm thinking maybe i need to edit this file into a diffrent format...
