Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 3487
rc.sysinit script bug
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:50 EDT
I was looking at why Linux says "can't find module st"
on the way up.
Turns out that the st.o (scsi tape) module is missing from
/lib/modules/2.2.5-15/scsi area so I copied it there.
Also, the /lib/modules/default link is not there because
of the bug in rc.sysinit so if you look for the
lines starting with:
It's trying to set up the 'default' link. But those 2 lines
need back-quotes ( ` ) after the equal sign and at the
end of the line to turn the resulting line into a string.
When I added that, I got the 'default' link and the error
on bringup didn't happen.
Funny think is that it still ran the scsi tape OK tho.
Actually, st is probably compiled into the kernel. ;)
The initscripts /lib/modules determination logic has
been fixed in the latest version of the initscripts, available
in Raw Hide.
What's "Raw Hide"? How do I get to it?
Raw Hide is the Red Hat rolling release program. It's a weekly
snapshot of our development tree. You can get stuff from it at
ftp://rawhide.redhat.com/ ; the files you'd be looking for would
be in the i386/RedHat/RPMS directory.
