Description Steve Wills 1998-12-15 06:17:42 UTC
the /boot/module-info-<kernelversion> file doesn't contain
any reference to the bpcd.o module (used for back pack
cdroms). Because of this, it is not listed in the list of
available modules in kernelcfg.

Comment 1 David Lawrence 1998-12-22 23:11:59 UTC
I have verified this bug to be true. The bpcd is a module that is
available with 5.2 but is not available to the kernelcfg application.

Comment 2 Steve Wills 1999-01-06 17:50:59 UTC
Additionally, /boot/module-info-2.0.36-0.7 has the entry:

# NOT YET
MODULARIZED!
#lance
#
eth
#       "AMD LANCE: Allied Telesis AT1500, HP J2405A, most
NE2100/clone"

Yet the kernel defintly has this as a module.

It should read

lance
        eth
        "AMD LANCE: Allied Telesis AT1500, HP J2405A, most
NE2100/clone"
        io "Base I/O address" "0x[0-9a-fA-F]+"

It may also need a line
        irq "IRQ level" "[0-9]+"

Comment 3 Michael K. Johnson 1999-03-23 22:47:59 UTC
Cristian, he's right, can you fix this the next time you build a
kernel package?  No point in building a new kernel just to fix this...
