    How to install batman-adv module


      I'm trying to install batman-adv mesh networking module. This is what I tried.


      1. Download opkg package from repo.

      2. Install said .ipk file with opkg (at this point, opkg did not give any error but batman-adv module still doesn't show up on lsmod, so proceeded to install manually)

      3. Copy batman-adv.ko from

      /lib/modules/3.10.17-yocto-standard/kernel/net/batman-adv/ to /lib/modules/$(uname -r)

      4. Run modprobe -f batman-adv

      Got "modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'batman_adv': Exec format error"


      modinfo of batman-adv.ko is

      filename:  /lib/modules/3.10.17-poky-edison+/batman-adv.ko
      version:   2013.2.0

      How do I proceed?
