I recently acquired a new sata drive, and have been trying unsuccessfully to install arch onto it.
When I run:
scsi_mod: exports duplicate symbol scsi_device_cancel (owned by kernel) insmod: cannot insert `/lib/modules/2.6.16/kernel/drivers/scsi/scsi_mod.ko': Invalid module format (-1): Exec format error libata: exports duplicate symbol ata_scsi_device_resume (owned by kernel) insmod: cannot insert `/lib/modules/2.6.16/kernel/drivers/scsi/libata.ko': Invalid module format (-1): Exec format error insmod: cannot insert '/lib/modules/2.6.16/kernel/drivers/scsi/sata_nv.ko': File exists (-1): File exists modprobe: failed to load module sata_nv
and I am unable to load the module. md5's of the cd checked out fine - I even downloaded the base iso and tried it, with no luck.
I looked around the forums, and sometimes a new pacman update to the kernel causes an error like this, and people have been able to get past it by passing -f to modprobe, but the bootable cd modprobe does not have the -f option.
Is there a way to fix this / install from a knoppix cd?
