Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 112459
init script fails to load socket driver on 2.6 kernel
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:34 EST
Description of problem:
On startup of a 2.6 kernel, the yenta_socket driver isn't loaded when
under 2.4 it is.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
On startup, the network script loads my PCMCIA WLAN card's driver, and
its dependencies, but not the socket driver (expected).
When the pcmcia script is launched, there's already a "pcmcia" entry
in /proc/devices which wouldn't be there under a 2.4 kernel.
So in addition to checking that pcmcia is present under /proc/devices,
it should check that the driver for the socket is loaded.
Trivial patch attached below.
Created attachment 96647 [details]
also check that the driver is loaded before not loading any modules
patch added to package
