Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 119545
kernel module binfmt_misc missing
Last modified: 2013-03-06 00:56:42 EST
* Description of problem:
modprobe: Can't locate module binfmt_misc
# grep BINFMT_MISC /boot/config-2.4.21-4.EL
Module binfmt_misc is not available, even if the default Kernel's
config file suggests it was compiled as a module.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
(Freshly installed RHEL 3.0 WS, no updates -yet)
I'm not sure if the module even should be there, just noticed this
when evaluating a software that requires binfmt_misc functionality.
kernel-2.4.21-9.0.1.EL.athlon.ron also seems to be missing binfmt_misc
This problem has been fixed in RHEL 3 U2.
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 107915 ***
Actually this is not a dup of 107915, but more like end-user problem.
I just learned that binfmt_misc is available in the
kernel-unsupported-...rpm package. This solves my problem.
I should have digged the documentation further, perhaps it's said
An errata has been issued which should help the problem described in this bug report.
This report is therefore being closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information
