Description eloranta 1999-10-09 15:37:56 UTC
Couple of problematic cases for kudzu:

1) I changed ethernet card from 3c509 to 3c59x.
   In the next boot it found out that the machine
   contained 3c59x. However, it left the old 3c509
   as eth0 and added 3c59x as eth1. It should have
   tested if 3c509 was gone (modprobe?) and removed
   it first then 3c59x would have appeared as eth0.

2) PC style parallel port (parport_pc) is not detected
   at all.

1) 3c509 is an ISA card, and kudzu doesn't detect ISA stuff, so
   it doesn't know that it's gone. The current behavior is to
   assume it isn't.  We could try using modprobe as you suggested,
   but that could get ugly, as the behavior of various module probes
   is not consistent (some even load successfully even if there
   isn't a card....)
2) Add
    alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
   to /etc/conf.modules, or update to the latest modutils
   from Raw Hide.
