Description Tim Waugh 2000-01-12 22:29:30 UTC
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 15:18:59 UTC
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 11:30:59 UTC
Okay. I guess it should be aliased off by default then.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2000-01-18 20:38:59 UTC
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 10:05:59 UTC
But are we going to alias char-major-10-1 off or not?
