Description Davide Bolcioni 2004-01-17 11:26:09 EST
Description of problem:
Spurious modprobe errors in /var/log/messages about BSD compression
module.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
modutils-2.4.25-13

How reproducible:
Always.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Estabilish a dialup connection.
2.
3.
  
Actual results:
The following appears in /var/log/messages:
modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module ppp-compress-21

Expected results:
No complaint.

Additional info:
The line appears because /etc/modprobe.conf.dist, which is included
by /etc/modprobe.conf, ships with

  alias ppp-compress-21 bsd_comp

but the kernel package ships without bsd_comp.o (see bug 63896).
Comment 1 Davide Bolcioni 2004-01-17 11:27:45 EST
I got rid of the message by adding

  alias ppp-compress-21 off # See Redhat Bugzilla 63896

to /etc/modules.conf (still using 2.4 here).

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2004-02-24 00:40:27 EST
Removed in modutils-2.4.26-6.
