Re: Q:Kernel version and insmod refusal

OK - I've now tried those things, and I get the same old message ... Any more 

^There are a few things you could try:
^- Compile a kernel where you don't add your ethernetcard as a module.


^- Compile a kernel where you select 'Set kernel version on all modules'
^(or something like that, when using make menuconfig it's in the same menu
^as 'Enable modules').


^- Make sure you did both 'make modules' and 'make modules_install'


^- What does modprobe 3905x say??
modprobe can't locate 

insmod still says  that I compile the 2c90x module for the wrong kernel...
