I know this thread is old... but...

AnitaOS has Kernel 2.6.25.16, but I cannot get the 8192.ko module to work. It installs but modprobe returns an error. Something about an invalid module format...?

Can anyone help?

Sounds a little odd... run modinfo on the module and see if the info in there matches the kernel you have.
OR it won't load if another module is already (erroneously) loaded. Check dmesg output too.

Kernel modules (drivers) are highly kernel version-sensitive.
They must be compiled against the EXACT kernel they are to be used with. This means not only the same kernel version, but the same kernel configuration.

Bottom line: these drivers will not be compatible with the AnitaOS kernel.

Gaah... should've guessed Rolling Eyes drivers are fussy...

tempestuous, I didn't think you were still around Razz thanks for the info -- I'll go pester darry1966, then.

Two things....

(1) wrong driver -- I need one for a Rosewill RNX-N150UBE USB WiFi b/g/n adapter (Realtek 8188SU chipset); WikiDevi tells me the proper driver is r8712u. I have another similarly named adapter and was apparently on the wrong page when I was looking for an 8192CU driver Embarassed

(2) darry1966 doesn't know how to compile drivers Sad apparently AnitaOS is a modified 412barebones; the kernel itself should be identical. I don't know how to compile drivers myself -- quite honestly if I did, I'd quite possibly brave the hardware specs of this particular heap and try to do it myself.

So, can anyone build me the driver I need? Please?

"Invalid module format"

Grrrr. Aargh.

I may have to stop being lazyish and see if the original Pup412 will boot nicely on this thing; if it does I'll do some of darry's upgrades (principally glibc piped up to 2.10...) and drop that driver down again.

EDIT: mikeb did some sleuthing for me -- I was using an SMP version of AnitaOS (I thought I'd be *avoiding* trouble that way... oh well) and he says that's the issue. So I'll see if the *non* SMP version of AnitaOS works for me.

EDIT2: works! Consider this one [SOLVED] Very Happy
