ksymoops run that can't find these modules
I initially filed this bug a month ago. Why is the status still NEW?
It's looking for the files where they were loaded from /lib on the initrd. It's
a harmless error, as I recall.
Thank you for the response.
Is this documented somewhere? Are the results valid
Hm, I thought I had some text on this. But now that I look at it again, there's
a way to make the error go away.
The oops trace *is* valid. Especially since the oops is not in the ext3 or jbd
modules, but appears to be in the USB code.
(The way to make the error go away is to run ksymoops with -i)
