Default Re: Slackware 12.2: x86-96.43.11 kernel module fails to load

Thanks for the quick reply.

This is a fresh install of Slackware 12.2 on a blank hard drive. I am using the same kernel that was used for the install. I checked using Slackware's pkgtool and verified that the kernel headers are for 2.6.27.7-smp, but the kernel source is for 2.6.24.5_smp. I originally looked at the headers and thought that was sufficient. From your statement, I gather that the kernel sources are important too. I don't understand why that older version of the kernel sources was loaded, as I did a full install. I will investigate getting the comparable kernel sources package and report back my findings.

Thanks again,

Mac
