FC5 usb creative webcam

Postby ear9mrn » Sun Jul 30, 2006 3:39 pm


I have a creative nx pro usb webcam that I had working under FC4 using spca5xx. I have tried installing it with 2.6.17-1.2145_FC5 but keep getting the following error.

"FATAL: Error inserting spca5xx (/lib/modules/2.6.17-1.2145_FC5/kernel/drivers/usb/media/spca5xx.ko): Invalid module format"

Anyone have any suggestions ?

How are you installing it? Kernel modules have to be compiled to suit a particular kernel, so if you are using a binary package, it must match your kernel package.
