If you changed it to "/usr/src/linux-2.4.22-21mdk/", you should be OK on
this score. The path is contains is *supposed* to be a symlink to the
actual location of kernel source (probably created by "make
modules_install" in the kernel Makefile, but that's really just a guess).
This sounds more and more like a naming problem. (In saying that, I'm
assuming that all of the commands listed above reported no problems -- no
errors or warnings -- except for the final modprobe error. I'm also
assuming you were root when you did all of it.)
1. What is the actual name of the directory path to your modules for your
2. Alternately, what is the name of the running kernel ("uname -a")?
3. What is the name of the kernel in your kernel-source file (this gets
constructed from the 4 kernel-name variables near the top of the kernel
If the answers to 2 and 3 don't contain the same name, then that is your
problem. If they do, then ...
4. What does "find / -name ivtv.o" (run as root) return in the way of
locations for copies of the module? If your procedure is not putting the
module in the right place, where *is* it putting ivtv.o?
