Kernel oop when accessing vloopback device

Question

When I first built the vloopback module, and modprobed it, I used it successfully for several hours. However, upon rebooting my machine, I can still load it, but whenever either Xawtv or WebCamStudio accesses the device, it kernel oops. I have not tried accessing it with Motion.

It does this regardless of whether there is a webcam attached or not, so it's not the webcam driver.

I'm running Fedora 8 with a 2.6.29.6 kernel. I also tried with an older kernel, 2.6.26.8-57.fc8 with the same results. I have 1GB RAM and a dual core athlon64 CPU.

EDIT: Found the problem Apparently my multiple source directories of both v4l-dvb and vloopback(1.1, 1.2, trunk) were getting confused in the linking process. I would build from the 1.2 directory, but when I would modprobe the vloopback device, it would load v1.3trunk, and link to the wrong v4l-dvb sources....or vise versa.

Deleting the extra source trees, rebuilding my kernel modules, then rebuilding v1.3trunk, and the latest v4l-dvb did the trick. Whew, seven days to get it right. Thanks for your help.
