Description Tim Waugh 2000-01-12 17:29:30 EST
On my 486, there is no psaux device. When kudzu runs on boot the first time
after installation, I get a message about not being able to find
char-major-10-1.  Shouldn't that be aliased to psaux already in modutils'
alias.h or else in conf.modules?

And shouldn't conf.modules be modules.conf? ;-)
Comment 1 Hans de Goede 2000-01-14 10:18:59 EST
Nope, psaux can't be compiled as module anymore, so if it it ain't there it
ain't there, you could alias it to off, to make modprobe shut up.
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2000-01-18 06:30:59 EST
Okay. I guess it should be aliased off by default then.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2000-01-18 15:38:59 EST
conf.modules will be modules.conf in the next major release. It's
not something we want to change in a point release.
Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2000-01-19 05:05:59 EST
But are we going to alias char-major-10-1 off or not?
