[etherlab-users] EtherCAT-Master on Raspberry Pi, Exec format error

Hi all,

I am trying to install the Ethercat-Master on a Raspberry Pi.

I downloaded the tarball from the Etherlab site with ‘wget ....’ and did everything according to the intsructions.
For ‘./configure --disable-e8139too’ it was necessary to download linux-headers for my kernel version 3.12.28+.
After this everything was working (make, make modules, make install, make modules_install, cp...., ln...., insserv)

However, if I try to start the service  (/etc/init.d/ethercat) with ‘sudo ./ethercat start’ it says:

        Starting EtherCAT master 1.5.2 ERROR: could not insert ‘ec_master’: Exec format error

Vermagic of ‘modinfo iptable_nat’ and of ‘modinfo ec_master’ are exactly the same.

I don’t know what I’m doing wrong, because I’m not very experienced regarding kernel modules.
I am grateful about all kind of help.

Best Regards,
