depmod -a failing after 6.1 install
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:40:05 EST
I have installed the RH 6.1 linux. On the first boot I saw the following
conf:1: missing argument
When I tracked down I saw that the depmod -a was generating this error
The modules.dep file was not created!
With strace depmod -a >log 2>&1 the following open command give the error
open("",O_WRONLY|O_CREAT|O_TRUNC,0666)=-1 ENOENT (no such file or
After I removed the first line form conf.modules the depmod -a no more failed.
The install program put the following lines in the conf.modules:
options cdu31a cdu31a_port=0x340
This is fixed in the latest version of the installer available in RawHide.
