You'll also need to check the version of gcc you use to compile the
module is the same as the running kernel. Use "cat /proc/version" to
find that info. On debian /usr/bin/gcc is a symlink to a specific
version of gcc, like so:
morbo:~# ls -la `which gcc`
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root root 7 2004-07-18 15:18 /usr/bin/gcc -> gcc-3.3
So if my kernel was compiled with something other than gcc-3.3, I would
rm /usr/bin/gcc then "ln -s /usr/bin/gcc-3.2 /usr/bin/gcc" . You might
also need to run "export CC=/usr/bin/gcc" as well.
