True, I renamed that file, since I got the message that it couldn't find
module omap. First I renamed it to omap_drv.so, which gave me the same
error, then I tried pvr_drm.so which is the attatched logfile. Both of
them are the omap_pvr_drv.so file.
Should there be a omap_drv.so file in the same directory as the
omap_pvr_drv.so file? In that case there isn't, the omap_pvr_drv.so file
is the only one in that directory when extracting that tarball. Actually
there is no file at all named omap_drv.so:
$ find . -name "omap_drv.so"
return nothing, while just omap gives
$ find . -name "omap*"
which is the same as "*drv*" gives.
