Description Jos Vos 1999-07-30 08:33:13 UTC
The detection of a SCSI tape in rc.sysinit is obsolete, as
the st.o module does not exist anymore (statically linked).
On systems with a SCSI tape you now see an error during the
boot sequence saying that the st module is not found.

Fix: just remove the 11 corresponding lines in rc.sysinit.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-07-30 15:18:59 UTC
Yup, this is fixed in the latest initscritpts in Raw Hide - basically
it checks for the st device and only loads a module if the module
exists.
