    I get the following error...

    depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.2.16-22/misc/backpack.o

    so I tried insmod backpack

    I got...

    /lib/modules/2.2.16-22/misc/backpack.o: unresolved symbol pi_register
    /lib/modules/2.2.16-22/misc/backpack.o: unresolved symbol pi_unregister

    so I tried installing the devices seperately...

    insmod pcd

    Using /lib/modules/2.2.16-22/misc/pcd.o
