Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 124563
asfwdg module not found after RH9->FC2 upgrade
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:43 EST
Description of problem:
LogWatch reports that the asfwdg module is not found. On startup, the
same module fails to start.
The /etc/init.d/asfd file includes the following line:
action $"Loading the watchdog module: " modprobe asfwdg
The /etc/modulescripts/asf directory has log files for both the
current 2.6.5-1.358smp kernel, as well as previous 2.4 kernels I had
on the machine. Previous log files look fine. The current log file is
riddled with errors and eventually fails. Here are a few interesting
lines. (I can provide the whole thing if that would be helpful.)
mach_mpspec.h: No such file or directory
`MAX_IRQ_SOURCES' undeclared here (not in a function)
asfwdg.c:346:28: linux/i2c-proc.h: No such file or directory
asfwdg.c:353:26: linux/tqueue.h: No such file or directory
I'm no kernel hacker, so if there's information you need for me to
provide, please let me know! Thanks.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Upgrade RH9 (as installed by Dell) to FC2.
Steps to Reproduce:
dell seems to have installed some weird module on your system that
doesn't work with 2.6 kernels.....
Weird indeed. It appears to be the watchdog for the ASF daemon. I
don't know if ASF is a standard RH thing or not. In any case, I'll
comment out the relevant lines from /etc/init.d/asfd and hope that the
problem goes away... I'll also change this bug to WONTFIX, on the
assumption that it's Dell's flakiness.
I was definitely confused when neither a search of the RH web site nor
of google found *any* reference to "asfwdg"!
