Previously it was possible to unload static modules. As these modules are static it wasn't actually unloaded but it was only made unavailable. After the unload action was completed these modules can be reactivated only by irssi restart. It is odd behaviour, thus the unload action was blocked on the static modules. Now only the dynamic modules can be unloaded.

Description Miroslav Vadkerti 2010-10-01 09:26:09 UTC
Description of problem: In the latest irssi in RHEL6 i cannot reload any module after I unloaded it. When I restart irssi some modules ate auto-loaded. Unloading any module has no affect on my irssi perl scripts though (what is strange) Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): irssi-0.8.15-3.el6 How reproducible: 100% Steps to Reproduce: 1. start irssi 2. check loaded modules /load Module Type Submodules core static core irc fe fe-irc fe-text dcc static irc fe-irc flood static irc notifylist static irc fe-irc perl static core fe 3. unload module (e.g. perl) /unload perl 4. verify perl module is gone /load Module Type Submodules core static core irc fe fe-irc fe-text dcc static irc fe-irc flood static irc notifylist static irc fe-irc 5. try to load module back /load perl -!- Irssi: Error loading module perl/core: /usr/lib64/irssi/modules/libperl_core.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Actual results: Can't load module Expected results: Module can be reloaded Additional info:
Comment 1 Jaroslav Škarvada 2010-10-12 13:19:50 UTC
Created attachment 452961 [details] Patch for disabling unload of static modules from UI This is one of possible solutions. Other (probably better and of course harder) solution is adding support for static modules reloading.

Comment 5 Suzanne Yeghiayan 2011-02-15 21:43:21 UTC
This issue was proposed for RHEL 6.1 FasTrack but did not get resolved in time. It has been moved to RHEL 6.2 FasTrack.
