Description of problem:
modprobe loaded_module used to succeed; not it fails printing an error
The failure causes several start scripts to fail.
Could we perhaps restore the original behavior, introducing a
command-line option to get it to return a failure status if the module
is already loaded?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: FATAL: Module sbp2 already in kernel.
Expected Results: Success
Please try 2.4.26-6; there was a fairly large module-init-tools update
It's fixed in today's rawhide, thanks. I should have waited one day
longer to file it ;-)
