I tried to load "hid-a4tech," but I got error the messages below:

[net_client@netarchwork ~]$ modprobe hid-a4tech modprobe: FATAL: Module hid-a4tech not found in directory /lib/modules/4.18.7-arch1-1-ARCH

[net_client@netarchwork ~]$ sudo insmod /lib/modules/4.18.9-arch1-1-ARCH/kernel/drivers/hid/hid-a4tech.ko.xz insmod: ERROR: could not insert module /lib/modules/4.18.9-arch1-1-ARCH/kernel/drivers/hid/hid-a4tech.ko.xz : Invalid module format

[net_client@netarchwork ~]$ ls /lib/modules/4.18.9-arch1-1-ARCH/kernel/drivers/hid/ | grep a4tech hid-a4tech.ko.xz

So, form the errors above modprode couldn't load compressed module and insmod was unable too! How can be this module loaded?

  • Your installed kernel and running kernel are different (4.18.7 v 4.18.9): that is your problem. – jasonwryan Sep 24 '18 at 17:36
