Subjectmaybe OT: segfault on insmod

this is probably the wrong maillinglist, but i'm quite shure, that you
guys at least know, what these errors mean and in which directions i
have to look further on.

FYI: saa7146_core.o and dvb.o are modules comeing with the dvb (digital
video broadcast) driver for linux>=2.4.3

insmod is not able to load the modules correctly. they
show up when i do lsmod but have a (initializing) before the [used by].

this is the relevant part from my dmesg output. can anybody see what is
going on here? i2c and videodev is compiled into kernel. machine is
pentium 100, 128MB ram, no harddisk, kernel-2.4.9, nfsroot, no real
system (init script directly loads the modules and starts a bash for

every tipp will be highly welcome!

best regards ...


kernel initialization is completed here:

VFS: Mounted root (nfs filesystem).
Mounted devfs on /dev

i2c-core.o: driver VES1893 DVB demodulator registered.

i2c-core.o: driver stv0299 DVB demodulator registered.

this happens when insmoding saa7146_core.o:
