Description Robert M. Riches Jr. 2001-09-24 13:43:11 EDT
Description of Problem:
"/sbin/rmmod -as" writes messages to console rather than
via syslog, whether done via /etc/cron.d/kmod or manually.
The -s switch is supposed to use syslog rather than the
console for messages.  The specific messages I am getting
on the console are from "bttv0" and "i2c-core.o".  (I can't
cut-and-paste the full text, because the console and X are
mutally exclusive.)  I suppose the messages in question
might actually be coming from the modules themselves rather
than from rmmod, in which case this report should be moved

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:
appears reasonably reliable, but now known for certain

Steps to Reproduce:
1. manually run "/sbin/rmmod -as" once or twice after using xawtv.


2. use xawtv
3. log out and let the system sit for a day or three

Actual Results:
Messages about "bttv0" and "i2c-core.o" being unloaded
and/or unregistered are printed to the console.

Expected Results:
Such messages should be sent via syslog.

Additional Information:

They are almost certainly coming from the modules themselves.

Can you paste a message ? if I have the text I can silence it.
(Note that I recommend removing the kmod script completely!)
