Description Jay Berkenbilt 1999-06-22 19:54:28 UTC
In RedHat 6.0, it appears that the kernel packages no longer
include st as a module but instead have st compiled into the
kernel.  However, /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit still runs modprobe
st if /proc/devices indicates the presence of st and
USEMODULES is true.  This is harmless, but does result in an
extra error message at boot time.  I don't know whether it
would be better to throw away the error message or to try to
determine whether st is a module or not.

in the latest initscripts in Raw Hide, it won't try to load the module
if it's compiled in into the kernel. We might also start
shipping it as a module again anyways...
