Networking :: Rtl8187 Driver Module Load Error (Invalid Module Format)?

Jun 1, 2009

When I try to load the Realtek 8187 modules to kernel using the ./wlan1up command, I get the following error:

[root@localhost rtl8187_linux_26.1025.0328.2007]# ./wlan1up
insmod: error inserting 'ieee80211_crypt-rtl.ko': -1 File exists


Can someone tell me how to correct the "Invalid module format"? I hope that correcting the "Invalid module format" error, I will not have the "Unknown symbol in module" error.

Note: I am using wlan1 for this module as I previously am online with the wlan0 network.The same error occurs if I use ./wlan0up.

Programming :: Adding External Module To Kernel Source?

Apr 27, 2010

There is a module A which is compiled with the kernel. I wrote an external module B which exported a symbol using EXPORT_SYMBOL.The module A now needs to talk with that exported symbol (function call). For that i modified A so that it includes the function call from B. However i now get unidentified symbol errors during 'make' operation as symbols of B are not present during kernel compile and A now kind of depends on B.

One solution is that make B part of the kernel as well. However, it would mean that whenever now i try to compile a kernel with a different source, i have to modify the config files and everything to accommodate B.Hence i am seeking a solution which does not include modifying the kernel.

Used to work perfectly. I attempted to install VPN client, result is can't connect to anything. Networks are seen by network manager, nothing happens when click connect. Results below:

Advice is to use output of dmesg command to find problem, but as above I don't get any results for this in terminal.

General :: Failed To Load "canberra-gtk-module": Libcanberra-gtk-module No Such File Or Directory

Mar 25, 2011

i installed firefox 4 and removed the old 3.X version. did a general update that my computer showed me was available then i noticed the first problem. firefox 4 would not launch when i clicked it, it would only launch when i clicked the gnome 3 applications button and then clicked and dragged the firefox logo to the desktop, then it opened. the second problem i am now having which at the moment is more bothersome is that after i closed the lid to my laptop and opened it up again after a while and logged back in and noticed that the ENTIRE gnome 3 environment was gone. no panel no menu nothing just the desktop and a few desktop icons. i tried the command "yum install gnome-shell" but it just sed that gnome 2.31.5-7 .fc14.i686 was already installed so it wasnt gonna do anything, then i tried the "gnome-shell --replace" command and it just said

failed to load "canberra-gtk-module": libcanberra-gtk-module no such file or directory.

General :: See Which Device Uses Which Kernel Module?

Aug 18, 2010

I have a Samsung phone GT-B3210. For some time I was unable to find working Windows drivers for it. I eventually gave up looking. Then one time I was charging phone over its USB port and booted Ubuntu and was pleasantly surprised when I saw phone's μSD card reader on my desktop. I now need to switch to Gento and would like to be able to work with phone there too. Lsusb tells me it's detected as Bus 007 Device 006: ID 04e8:663f Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd SGH-E720/SGH-E840but lsmod wasn't very helpful. On the list of loaded modules, I wasn't able to find one which looks like it's related to the phone.

General :: Automatically Load Kernel Module?

Aug 6, 2010

I'd like openSUSE to automatically load a kernel module (e.g. libsas) at boot time even no device requires it. In Ubuntu, you would add the module name to the file /etc/modules. Is this the correct place for openSUSE as well?

General :: Kernel Module Run In It / User Space?

Oct 25, 2010

I'm pretty new to this whole (micro)kernel architecture story.

Im wondering if a kernel module is running in kernel or in user space?

Is a driver running as kernel module slower than a driver build into kernel?
If so, are there some current articles, benchmarks?

General :: Install New Module On Newly 2.6.35-rc5 Kernel?

Jul 16, 2010

Recently I was trying to look into vmware pvscsi modules for newly announced linux kernel 2.6.35-rc2. I compiled the kernel with option: make oldconfig where it asked me for various interactive options and all I did is Kept pressing the Enter ENTER key(Donno if that is the correct way to slect default ).The Kernel Compilation anyway went fine and I can see new kernel at grub screen, booted and it went fine.Now when I explored I found that nor the vmware_balloon and vmw_pvscsi modules are present which means I need to install these modules.I came to know that recently a new version of the vmware memory drivers being included through this page:


where you can see an entry like:


MODULE_AUTHOR("VMware, Inc.");
MODULE_DESCRIPTION("VMware Memory Control (Balloon) Driver");

Doesn't it mean that the new kernel has new driver version inboxed?Also, I tried to install modules through modprobe and insmod(seems that this doesnt work) but couldnt do that.

General :: Write Kernel Module That Will DMA Custom Card?

Aug 31, 2010

I am trying to write a kernel module that will DMA my custom card. Right now when i plug the card into linux no valid PCI device shows up (meaning I probably have a error on my end, i know) however, If I halt the system at startup in the bootloader (uboot) I am able to directly access the card as I know in uboot the physical memory address that is mapped to my device. Is there a way I can access the card in a simliar fashion in linux?

General :: How To Load A Kernel 2.6 Module With F Force Option?

Jan 21, 2010

I have a loadable module, simple enough I believe it should run on any 2.6 kernel. I want to force the load and test that assumption. How can I do it?

ismod does not seem to notice the -f in 2.7 modprobe has -f but cannot locate the module.No go. So I read the manpage for modprobe which says: modprobe looks in the module directory /lib/modules/'uname -r'.So I copied MYMODULE.ko to /lib/modules/2.6.(the only directory in here) and type: modprobe -f MYMODULE.ko.Still can't locate MYMODULE.ko.I notice there are no other .ko modules in that directory; so I go in deeper to kernel/drivers/char, guessing about the char directory, and copy MYMODULE.ko there.

General :: Writing A Kernel Module And Make Concepts

Mar 13, 2011

i have written some really basic loadable kernel modules. There are a couple of concepts that i'll like to get cleared.

In a tutorial, the Makefile was given as follows-
obj-m += try.o
make -C /lib/modules/$(shell uname -r)/build M=$(PWD) modules
make -C /lib/modules/$(shell uname -r)/build M=$(PWD) clean

I understand that -C option of 'make' changes the current directory to /lib/modules/$(shell uname -r)/build (which depends on my kernel).

Now, my question is why to change to that particular directory? Also M=$(PWD) will hold the dir where i have written the module. Why is it required? What does 'modules' at the end of that line indicate?

Q2> We need to include <linux/module.h> and <linux/kernel.h> in a module. If i am right, the module uses kernel headers for these definitions. But how does 'make' find these definitions.

Q3> We are planning to write a custom scheduler for linux kernel. cat /sys/block/sda/queue/scheduler gives us the currently loaded schedulers. How do we expose our scheduler to linux kernel so that we can use it by switching to it.

General :: Pass Options To A Kernel Module Through The Boot Parameter?

Nov 4, 2010

I have an issue that is fixed by changing the lpfc driver to run using MSI interrupts. This is done by adding "options lpfc lpfc_use_msi=2" /etc/modprobe.conf.local file.

Is there a way to make this change using kernel boot parameters?
