OpenSUSE Wireless :: Linksys WUSB600N (rt2870) - Insmod: Error Inserting 'rt2870sta.ko': -1 Invalid Module Format

May 24, 2009

I'm new to openSUSE and as a matter of fact, to linux too. I've got a Linksys WUSB600N wireless adapter which used to work fine with some live versions of linux that I was testing out before moving onto suse... Each time, upon booting using live CDs, I used to copy the driver I had downloaded from:

SpeedShare - Download rt2870-kernel-2.6.24-nemesis.tar.bz2

Then 'make' and get into the driver's os/linux directory to load the driver using 'insmod rt2870sta.ko' Now, upon doing a 'make' and 'make install', followed by the 'insmod rt2870sta.ko', I get the error saying:

insmod: error inserting 'rt2870sta.ko': -1 Invalid module format

I tried doing 'modprobe -rv rt2870sta' and didn't get any error messages. But while doing 'modprobe -v', this error shows up: insmod /lib/modules/
FATAL: Error inserting rt2870sta (/lib/modules/ Invalid module format

General :: Insmod: Getting "KIlled" Message While Inserting Kernel Module?

May 18, 2010

i created a sample module and while trying to insert it i am getting the message "Killed". But when I did lsmod my module was listed out there and was 'Used by' 1. Maybe because it is in use I cannot do a rmmod on my module. How to overcome this, that is do a rmmod while it is still in use?

Red Hat :: Error Inserting MD5 - Invalid Argument

Mar 24, 2011

I am running Red Hat with 2.6.18-194.8.1.el5PAE kernel version. I am trying to run encryptfs to encrypt a partition on my hard drive. One of the kernel modules necessary is the md5.ko. I noticed it wasn't loaded in when doing an lsmod. I tried running modprobe md5 and it fails to load:

[root@ ~]# /sbin/modprobe -v md5

I ran dmesg and grepped for md5, but I didn't see anything in there.

OpenSUSE :: VirtualBox: Error Inserting Vboxnetflt: Invalid Module Format

i installed SLES 11 sp1 as guest on openSUSE 11.3 host, then change the adapter network from 'NAT' to 'Bridged Adapter', but when i hit start i got this error message: Failed to open a session for the virtual machine sles.

OpenSUSE Install :: Invalid Module Format - FATAL: Error Inserting P4_clockmod

I have a problem with loading the powersaving kernel module p4-clockmod.ko. When I try inserting the module (via modprobe or insmod) I get FATAL: Error inserting p4_clockmod (/lib/modules/ Invalid module format The module has been compiled together with the kernel. Other modules load with no problem at all. I've tried recompiling the kernel (after re-installing the sources, make xconfig from scratch) - no avail. There's only one kernel source package installed. Searching the forum and google didn't yield a helping answer.

CentOS 5 :: Install Fedora 13 VM On 5.5 With Xen: Invalid Kernel Error

Sep 8, 2010

I'm trying to install Fedora 13 VM on my CentOS 5.5 64 bit install following the below link. I used this same process to install a CentOS 5.5 VM just to test the process. Now when I try to follow it making changes for Fedora Im getting an error.[URL] config file:

kernel = "/install/vm/fedora/vmlinuz"
ramdisk = "/install/vm/fedora/initrd.img"
name = "fedora13"


In the CentOS link I posted it said to use kernel from the xen directory.Ive found out that the last fedora version that shipped with xen was fedora 8. Does anyone know where I can find a fedora 12/13 xen kernel? Ive searched google for hours and can not find a xen kernel. Actually I'm to the point where I would even use ubuntu or any similar distro if I could find a xen kernel.

General :: Booting Into Kernel - Error 13: Invalid Or Unsupported Executable Format

Sep 13, 2010

I've been playing around with trying to assemble a bare-bones Linux system on a disk.img file through a loop device. I compiled the most recent stable kernel and then copied it onto the root partition in the image. When I try to boot up into the image using qemu, grub gives me this:

Booting 'tiny'
root (hd0,0)
Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
kernel /boot/vmlinux
Error 13: Invalid or unsupported executable format

Press any key to continue... I am confused because I compiled the kernel with 'make bzImage', and the architecture hasn't changed (qemu on the same machine used to build the kernel). So it should be bzImage format. Is that what this Error 13 means, or could it means something else is wrong...?

CentOS 5 :: Died, Kernel File Not Found \ Get:Error 13: Invalid Or Unsupported Executable Format?

Aug 31, 2011

I have a weird problem with one of my servers (normal PC hardware). I was connected remotely using Putty, doing some stuff, and all of the sudden some commands, like "ls" stopped working, giving a "file or command not found" type of message. I restarted the ssh session, only to find out I couldn't log on any more (access denied). When I got home and rebooted the system, I was greeted with this:Booting 'CentOS (2.6.18-194.el5xen)'root (hd0,0)Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83kernel /boot/xen.gz-2.6. 18-194.el5Error 15: File not foundPress any key to continue...Then I searched about this, found out that the files in /boot/grub/menu.lst did not exist at the specified location (/boot/xen.gz-2.6. 18-194.el5). Somehow I managed to find them in another place, copied them in place, and now I get:Error 13: Invalid or unsupported executable format

Programming :: Cannot Understand Invalid Read Error

Aug 25, 2010

I have just started using Valgrind,which really is great. Most of the reported errors look kinda weird, though I can't really understand what's going on here, for example:

==00:00:02:52.033 7754== Invalid read of size 4
==00:00:02:52.033 7754== at 0x80B0987: MyCls::MyPrintf(long, char*, ...) (MyCls.cpp:270) ...

sMsg=0x6974320 "blablabla"...) at MyCls.cpp:270
270 cout<<endl<<"m_FilePtr="<<hex<<m_FilePtr<<dec<<endl;

Basically, Valgrind reported the "Invalid Read" error at line 270 of file MyCls.cpp, which is simply a cout of the m_FilePtr variable, which is a member variable of the MyCls class. It's a FILE* variable I use to write repeatedly on a text file. The address reported (0x47a5ee8) is 296 bytes after the "this" pointer (0x47a5dc0),as Valgrind correctly tells me but I honestly don't understand that. And of course, I need to read that variable, not only for the cout (indeed,the error is reported at every reading attempt). Besides, the application doesn't crash, but still I would like to understand if I really have to worry about this "error".

Programming :: KSH - Script Error - Invalid Command ?

Aug 3, 2010

Essentially my ksh script calls a program and passes some commands. It's entering the program just fine, but when it passes the commands it gets "invalid command" error, and loops for a bit.

When I run all the steps manually the program works fine. I turned debug on and see that it enters the program, cmbview, but for whatever reason, it fails on any command that it tries to parse.

Tried running it in a ksh shell, same error. Tried running it as bash shell, same error.

The cmbview exe works and the following commands work, so I can only assume its something with the script parsing the commands.

OpenSUSE :: Error Using Insmod / Modprobe

Mar 20, 2011

I was trying to compile and insert a module. The module compiles fine and creates tool.ko file(am compiling it from Desktop). Next when I try to use "insmod tool.ko" , it gives em this error: insmod: error inserting 'tool.ko': -1 Operation not permitted.I tried to use modprobe instead , thinking it might install the dependencies(if any) by itself: "modprobe -v tool.ko" but it gives me this error
FATAL: Module tool.ko not found

I went over some linux forum posts and tried to resolve it but no use.I copied all the files from Desktop to the /lib/modules/ folder and then ran the commands but still face the same problem. Used this "/sbin/depmod -a " thinking it might update the modeprob.conf file, but no use !

Debian Programming :: Python-TK Alloc - Invalid Block Error

Sep 23, 2015

Just installed Debian 8 last night and trying to run one a few of my scripts that use easygui (a front-end for python-tk basically) and I keep getting alloc: invalid block any time a file or folder selection dialog is presented. I'm able to select a file/folder with no issues, but once the dialog closes I get a variation of what appears to be a memory error followed by alloc: invalid block.

Here's one of my scripts that does it. This one pops up a file selection dialog pretty early on to ask for a file to check, and as soon as I select any file the dialog closes and that error appears in the terminal. It happens whether I run it with Python 2 or Python 3. You will need to install python3-easygui for this script to run properly if you want to check for yourself what happens. This is a first time encountering this error for me.

General :: Porting WiFi Drivers - Insmod RTMP Error

I am still new to porting wifi drivers. I am currently porting Ralink RT5370 driver, no problem with the compilation but when I execute insmod operation I got a lot of errors regarding RTMP. This is a part of the error I got:

rt5370sta: Unknown symbol RtmpOsAtomicInit

insmod: can't insert '/home/rt5370sta.ko': unknown symbol in module or invalid parameter
Based on the some forum that I've read, adding the MODULE_LICENSE("GPL") is one of the solution. I did add it inside usb_main_dev.c and recompile but I still get the same errors.
