Description pkinz 1999-06-15 20:55:39 UTC
I was looking at why Linux says "can't find module st" on the way up. Turns out that the st.o (scsi tape) module is missing from /lib/modules/2.2.5-15/scsi area so I copied it there. Also, the /lib/modules/default link is not there because of the bug in rc.sysinit so if you look for the lines starting with: mtag= and mver= It's trying to set up the 'default' link. But those 2 lines need back-quotes ( ` ) after the equal sign and at the end of the line to turn the resulting line into a string. When I added that, I got the 'default' link and the error on bringup didn't happen. Funny think is that it still ran the scsi tape OK tho.

Actually, st is probably compiled into the kernel. ;) The initscripts /lib/modules determination logic has been fixed in the latest version of the initscripts, available in Raw Hide.

What's "Raw Hide"? How do I get to it?
