General :: Loaded Kernel Modules On Virtual Server And CSF Confusion
Dec 24, 2010
what is happening on my Centos virtual server (ps I'm having a great time re-learning Linux after a large gap and usually try and find out myself but this has me confused) First thing I did was install Tomcat and try and change the port to 80 using iptables -nat and it complained a kernel module was missing. Instead setup Apache to redirect requests so that's now working I then tried to install CSF firewall and the validation perl script returned fatal errors so I assumed OK my virtual server Kernel is restricted and used denyhosts instead which is working great
Here's the confusion.. I later retried the csftest script and it now works including all the iptables and nat stuff that fataled before. I've not rebooted or changed anything except run denyhosts and the postgres daemon + ended a few daemons that I didn't need (eg pickup,tlsmgr,courier,postfix,qmgr,saslauthd) Running lsmod returns nothing and /proc/modules is zero bytes so I'm not able to tell what is loaded? I'm tempted to try and get Tomcat redirecting via iptables and see what happens but if it works I don't like that something seems to have changed.. before I ran it direct as root now I'm SU into root from another login
I recently updated the kernel from SLES 11 to SLES 11 SP1 .However my kernel modules are not getting loaded and they throw an error such as shown below:"Errornserting mii : Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)"

Then under that it says kernel modules: nvidia recent, nvidia-96, nouveau, nvidiafb. So what it looks like I have 3-4 drivers for my video card loaded and one, nouveau, being used. I think they conflict with each other.
I'm trying to add drivers other then nouveau, because the mouse freezes with it. At this point I can't seem to get rid of nouveau, I go to terminal and type: sudo apt-get --purge remove xserver-xorg-video-nouveau And it says that it's not loaded so I can't dump it. lspci-v says nouveau is the driver being used and trying to dump it. It says it isn't installed. I'm confused. I want to dump nouveau, what should I do? I also go into Synaptic package manager and it isn't listed as being installed.
I have installed VMware (VMware-Player-3.0.1-227600.x86_64.bundle) on my laptop. When I open Vmware from Applications/System Tools/VMware Player.I get a window that says: VMware Kernel Module Updater Before you can run VMware, several modules must be compiled and loaded into the running kernel.When I click on install and after putting in my passwd.a window comes up with a list:
But it just try the first one and show an error (window) that says.unable to build kernel module see log file /tmp/vmware-root/setup-9572.log for details.I cannot even go into the folder vmware-root because it says I do not have permissions even though am an administrator.
but i already do yum groupinstall "Development Tools" yum install kernel-devel commands.
I just reinstall my centos, and in the previous installation I used the virtual box without problems. that is giving wrong this time? (i had tried the .run installer and the rpm installer but all lead the same.)
im running suse 11.3_x64 clean install along side with Win7 Pro _x64 had a big fight installing Vbox 3.2.8 PUEL edition but i need to test some VMWare products like 'VMWare vShpere (ESXi 4..0.1 - which i couldn't install in a vm in Vbox) ' before putting it in production enviroment in some of my clients. version: VMware-Workstation-Full-7.0.0-203739.x86_64 The installation of vmware was quite simple with no errors. the problem kicks in after the first reboot when i try to run it. before installing vmware i installed the following:
When i try to run vmware workstation the 1st error kicks in: Before you can run vmware, several modules must be compiled and loaded into the running kernel:
I am trying to setup Slacware 13.1 x86_64 to a encrypted partition. I used the README_CRYPT.TXT howto : [URL] At the step when I create an initrd.gz I get this error: Quote: ERROR: No /lib/modules/18.104.22.168-smp kernel modules tree found for kernel "22.214.171.124-smp"
I tried to look into the directory and there was only modules under 126.96.36.199. So I tried to change the command into: Quote: mkinitrd -c -k 188.8.131.52 -m ext3 -f ext3 -r cryptroot -C /dev/sda2
This command was successful, but I don't know if this is alright. I made the changes in lilo.conf, add initrd = initrd.gz. This is all on unencrypted /boot partition. The boot=/dev/sda1 I also set for the unencrypted boot partition. When I boot the system I get a kernel panic:
I was trying to install VirtualBox through the YaST > Software Management but it is not working, someone in the forum told me that I have to download the OSE version and do it manual way. Finally I am able to start up VB but not able to use the network connection. Thus I am trying to do this:
/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup. I get this error:
When I type dmesg, it shows me a bunch of info which I don't know what should look for. When I type modprobe vboxnetflt, I get the error: FATAL: Error inserting vboxnetflt (/lib/modules/184.108.40.206-1.2-default/updates/vboxnetflt.ko): Invalid module format. what should I do in order to get my VB to be able to connect to the internet?
I'm trying to prevent a few modules from loading at boot, like i.e. bluetooth, sco, bnep, btusb, usb_storage and uvcvideo, so I blacklisted them in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf but they still get loaded. I've checked that I unload all of the ones depending on eachother so that shouldn't be the problem, I think. Does anyone know what I'm supposed to do to really prevent them from loading?
I just installed slack 13.37. I was poking around a little and I noticed that I have all these modules loaded... yet when I open up /etc/rc.d/rc.modules almost everything is commented out. how are these modules being loaded at boot time?
I was using v 8.10. It came to its end of life and I felt compelled to upgrade. I upgraded to v 9.04. All seemed well, but then I discovered that I had no sound. As a test, I booted up with the v 9.04 CD, using it as a live CD. I had sound, so it seems as though it should be possible for me to have sound from my upgraded v 9.04 too, provided I can make the necessary changes to it.
When using the live CD and opening the volume control, I get as the listed device "HDA ATI SB (Alsa mixer)". That doesn't appear when I open the volume control using my upgraded v 9.04. Instead, it says "Playback: Null Output (PulseAudio mixer)". Also, when I check for loaded modules when using the live CD, I get many with snd in their name, but nary a one when using the upgraded 9.04.
Is there some simple way for me to load the same modules in the upgraded 9.04 as are loaded by the live CD? I tried to figure out the answer to this by reading other threads, but was simply overwhelmed by the volume of material and often wasn't sure to which version of Ubuntu it applied.
I am trying to install Debian lenny and ext2 filesystem with GRUB as bootloader in my USB memory stick to boot linux . However , when i try it out on my PC , a grub error : No loaded kernel is shown. I have checked that the kernel image is located in /boot.
I have just compiled a new kernel. When I boot into this new kernel and do an lsmod it is only running two modules. The only thing I changed in the configuration file was to compile ext4 file system into the kernel. My computer is an HP Pavilion dv4. The two modules are lirc_ene0100 and lirc_dev. I am running Ubuntu 10.04. The new kernel is 220.127.116.11+drm33.5. The kernel seems to work fine but I need to know why and how it can only be running two modules.
I'm trying to install VMWare server on my Kubuntu box and it's telling me there are 3 "kernel modules" that it needs me to remove (apparently they were installed previously and VMWare isn't liking that).How do I remove them? Never messed with the kernel modules before.
I've got a problem with my 3G modem [Huawei E122]. It has internal storage and kernel assigns a device [/dev/sdX] to it. Because of that, every second time my machine will not boot - kernel panic - as my usb hdd gets assigned /dev/sdb instead of /dev/sda. I cannot use LABEL nor UUID in root= kernel parameter, as it is only available when using initrd, and I can't use it - I am using Debian on my router - mips architecture machine. I have to prevent this from happening, as my router has to start everyday and I have to be sure it works ok. I don't have physical access to restart it when something goes wrong. I don't use my modem internal storage, there's no SD card inserted. However kernel detects the reader and loads it. I can not prevent loading od usb drivers since my hdd is on USB as well.
It has been years since I have need to compile the kernel or its modules. Here goes: I recently upgraded to ubuntu 10.10 and needed the kernel source and its modules source. The relevant directories are in a mess. Several diff versions, broken links, the works. Is there a nice easy way, to remove all of the sources, there, and err "install" the ones for my latest kernel, in the correct places. Then I might have a chance at getting the two modules I need complied! Nvidia being one for the geforce 4 mx420 nv17
I'm trying to compile a kernel for my Crux Linux install. I figured I'd do a 'make defconfig' to setup a .config file with the default configuration and then try to add anything I will need for my specific system. I found a script that scans my system and prints out a list of any current modules I am using. That way I can make sure to add these to my new kernel. It looks something like this:
Is there a way to add these to my current configuration without having to go into 'make menuconfig' and search for each one? It's not too hard to search for many of them. But the ones with short names I'm not finding. Like ac.ko for example. 'ac.ko' returns 0 search results and 'ac' returns anything and everything with those 2 letters in it.
Since new kernel 3.0 update I cannot rebuild vmware modules
sudo vmware-modconfig --console --install-all Unable to initialize kernel module configuration
how to do that. Where do I insert the "CONFIG_LOCALVERSION" line.
Same here. This seems to be due to the kernel version being "3.0" instead of "3.0.0". Recompiling the Kernel (and all modules based on it, e.g. nvidia) with CONFIG_LOCALVERSION=".0-ARCH" allows me to compile the modules and run VMware.
I have some confusion about mysqladmin and mysql.I am using mysql version Quote:

I want to know if I install an ubuntu server as a domain controller with Samba as PDC so my users can authenticate to the domain through to Samba why do I need Ldap authentication? it isn't enough with Samba? In which cases do you use Samba? and when do you use Ldap? and when do you use both?
I'm trying to install the 32bit 10.04 server to an atom machine from a CD burned with ubuntu-10.04-server-i386.iso. The installer is presenting me with the:"No kernel modules were found" ..error message. Is the atom cpu and chipsets supported by the 32bit server installer?
