Description Landon Curt Noll 2001-10-20 17:53:08 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.78 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.19-7.0.10 i686)

Description of problem:
After installing the recent RH critical updates (kernel 2.2.19-7.0.8 to
2.2.19-7.0.10; glibc 2.2-12 to 2.2.4-18.7.0; openssh 2.5.2p2-1.7.2 to
2.9p2-8.7), in-bound connections result on modprobe looking
for the non-existent module net-pf-10.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.start openssh (2.9p2-8.7) on a 2.2.19-7.0.10 kernel
2.monitor syslog output
3.ssh into the host

Actual Results:  ssh login completes and syslog receives the modprobe

    modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module net-pf-10

Expected Results:  ssh login completes and no warning is issued

Additional info:

FYI: The current modutils level is modutils-2.3.21-1.
I am using the 'stock' sshd_config.
Also the kernel was configured without IPV6:

    # CONFIG_IPV6 is not set

If one adds:

    alias net-pf-10 off

to /etc/modules.conf, this syslog warning goes away.
Comment 1 Nalin Dahyabhai 2002-03-07 12:31:42 EST
The alias is there in newer modutils, so I'm marking this as fixed in the
current release.
