Description Richard Keech 2001-03-21 06:20:42 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.1-0.1.9 i686)

Put following line in /etc/modules.conf
   pre-install  sg  modprobe ide-scsi
I expected ide-scsi module to load when sg 
module is loaded.  Both load independently without
error when insmod called from command line.
I have used this approach to
Using modutils 2.4.2-3 as supplied with wolverine.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. as above.

Actual Results:  There is no indication either on the command line or in
the message file
that the pre-install command is being attempted.

Expected Results:  I expect the ide-scsi module to show in the output of
lsmod after
running insmod sg.

I'm using  Sony CRX140E drive, which works fine when 
both sg and ide-scsi modules are loaded.

Does it work if you change it to:

above sg ide-scsi


Comment 2 Richard Keech 2001-03-21 06:51:28 UTC
yes,  "above sg ide-scsi" does work as expected (which, I see now, is a better
way to do it).

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2001-03-21 06:55:23 UTC
OK. I just tried the 'pre-install' variant, and it worked here OK; with
that, and because the 'above' directive seems to work for you, I'm going
to close this as notabug.
