On my fedora 6 box with an Athlon processor,
I'm getting some 586/686 module problem (see '^^^'):
insmod: error inserting './quickcam.ko': -1 Invalid module format
=== Leaving root mode ===
quickcam: version magic
'2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 SMP mod_unload 686 REGPARM 4KSTACKS gcc-4.1' should be
'2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 SMP mod_unload 586 REGPARM 4KSTACKS gcc-4.1'
in /lib/modules/2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 was this broken link:
build -> ../../../usr/src/kernels/2.6.18-1.2798.fc6-i586
Why the heck it says i586 I don't know; made a new link with i686,
but not surprisingly got the same problem.
CPU0: AMD Athlon(tm) stepping 00
Linux gigabyte.zarcomm.com 2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 #1 SMP

rpm -qa | egrep kern
Did run 'make oldconfig && make prepare'
Hope it's not some dumb fedora problem.
Any help would be appreciated.
Well, figured it out (well, after some searches):
turns out, fedora 6 will occasionally install a 586
kernel into a 686 system, or in my case, a K5 kernel
into a K7 system. Anyways, needed to upgrade the kernel
anyways, so that took care of that.
