Description Alexandre Oliva 2004-02-24 03:39:05 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040217

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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.modprobe any_loaded_module

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 ;-)
