Description Harlan Harris 2004-05-27 10:53:34 EDT
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
/lib/modules/2.6.5-1.358smp/build/include/asm/io_apic.h:160: error:
`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
etc, etc...

I'm no kernel hacker, so if there's information you need for me to
provide, please let me know! Thanks.

dell seems to have installed some weird module on your system that
doesn't work with 2.6 kernels.....
Comment 2 Harlan Harris 2004-05-27 11:07:02 EDT
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"!
