Description Derek Tattersall 2001-01-16 15:48:48 UTC
Dmesg output :
kmod: failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k scsi_hostadapter, errno=2

/etc/modules.conf has :
alias scsi_hostadapter aic7xxx

lsmod shows the module inserted.

Comment 1 Glen Foster 2001-01-16 16:39:36 UTC
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Beta-3

Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2001-01-16 17:46:41 UTC
Assigning to correct component.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2001-01-16 17:56:35 UTC
This is not a modutils problem. Almost certainly there's something wrong
with the initrd.

Comment 4 Erik Troan 2001-01-17 20:13:00 UTC
Does the system boot normally? Is the module installed?

There is basically no information in this bug report.

Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2001-01-22 18:01:00 UTC
This is because scsi_mod and sd_mod are loaded in the initrd regardless of whether or not there are SCSI adapters.

Here's a patch that works for me.

Comment 7 Matt Wilson 2001-01-23 10:12:19 UTC
agreed.  building.

Comment 8 Ben Levenson 2001-02-14 22:36:43 UTC
build: qa0214.0
variety of hardware (aic7xxx, ncr53c8xx,  megaraid)
still present in dmesg:
kmod: failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k scsi_hostadapter, errno = 2

Comment 9 Tim Waugh 2001-02-15 01:16:39 UTC
Yes, if you actually _have_ a scsi host adapter driver to load, then it still
happens, because sd_mod tries to load it.

I suppose the only way to fix that is to mount /proc and write '/bin/true' into
/proc/sys/kernel/modprobe, and reset it afterwards.


Comment 10 Erik Troan 2001-02-23 18:22:20 UTC
fixed by mkinitrd-3.0.8
