Comment 4 Harald Hoyer 2005-01-19 23:48:25 UTC
is the module loaded??

Comment 5 St. Thomas of Tacoma 2005-01-20 15:44:10 UTC
What Module needs to be loaded.  Is it included in the module list on 
the Anaconda installer?

Comment 6 Dave Jones 2005-01-21 02:48:29 UTC
it's not a module, the raw driver is always built in.

Comment 7 Harald Hoyer 2005-04-27 16:12:31 UTC
# find /sys/ -name dev|fgrep raw

The raw device driver does not seem to be sysfs compliant then..

Comment 8 Dave Jones 2005-04-29 00:26:21 UTC
(19:24:05:davej@dhcp83-8:~)$ cat /sys/class/raw/rawctl/dev

Comment 9 Harald Hoyer 2005-04-29 11:05:33 UTC
if this is there, then udev should have created /dev/rawctl as it does with all
other device nodes.

Comment 10 Harald Hoyer 2005-09-16 14:34:51 UTC
still an issue?

Comment 11 Phil Knirsch 2008-08-18 14:59:56 UTC
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Engineering for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release.

matter feel free to reopen this bug and attach the needed information.

With the goal of minimizing risk of change for deployed systems, and in
response to customer and partner requirements, Red Hat takes a conservative
approach when evaluating enhancements for inclusion in maintenance updates
for currently deployed products. The primary objectives of update releases

However, Red Hat will further review this request for potential inclusion
in future major releases of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
