I am trying to install WinDriver on my Linux machine, but when I insert the WinDriver module (windrvr6.o) into the kernel I get errors regarding kernel version mismatch or unresolved symbols. How can I resolve this?

When installing WinDriver on a Linux machine, you must make sure that you are compiling WinDriver with the same header files that were used to build your kernel. `#uname -a` will tell you your kernel version number.
Linux is very strict about kernel version mismatch and will even protest, for example, about 2.2.12-20 against 2.2.12.

You should verify that the directory /usr/src/linux (normally a symbolic ink) is pointing to the correct kernel header sources and that the header files are using exactly the same version numbers as your running kernel.

Please refer to the WinDriver Linux installation instructions (also found in the WinDriver User's Manual) for a detailed step-by-step installation instructions.
