Server :: How To Permanently Remove A Module From Kernel

Apr 11, 2010

I got this problem where my USB ports don't work. So if I do the command:

modprobe -r ehci_hcd

it fixes it. I can put it in the /etc/rc.local so that it runs every time when the server reboots. But, I want the ehci module removed without ever being loaded because sometimes the server goes through an fsck and the module is loaded and therefore I cannot use my IPMI to access the server.

I believe that my kernel has it within it because blacklisting the module does not work. I've tried remaking the initrd with this:

add module to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
mkinitrd -f /boot/initrd-$(uname-r).img $(uname -r)

and that didn't work. I've searched on how to do it but nothing is really clear. I would like to know what the command would be to do this. I use Fedora 8.

I would like the ehci_hcd module to not be loaded so that if the server goes through an fsck, the module is still not loaded.

OpenSUSE Install :: OS 11.3 RC2 - Disable Nouvou Module Permanently; Use Propietary NVidia Drivers?

Jul 5, 2010

I have compiled the proprietary nvidia drivers for 11.3. When I boot, even using the nomodeset boot option, the nouveau module still loads, causing gdm/X to fail. I am able to manually remove the modules with rmmod and restart gdm. Everything then works normally. I have added the line "blacklist nouveau" to both 50-blacklist.conf and 99-local.conf in /etc/modprobe.d

Debian Multimedia :: Permanently Remove Gtk-3.0 Folder In Wheezy?

Sep 1, 2011

There is a folder in my home titled 'gtk-3.0,' which continues to reappear even after I have deleted it. The reappearance of the folder seems to occur after using lxappearance to change the themes. I will not be participating in the headaches of the switch from gtk2 to gtk3, just as I did not participate in the headaches of the switch from KDE 3 to 4. So the following are my questions;1. Is it possible to permanently delete the gtk-3.0 folder so that it can not ever reappear in my home? (And why is it appearing there anyway? Shouldn't it be hidden with a dot?)2. If I can not prevent this folder from appearing in my home, is there a setting I can use in Wheezy to block gtk3 libs and apps from installation? Presently, the only gtk3 lib or app shown by aptitude search is libcanberra-gtk3-0, but I can't remove it due to notification-daemon dependencies.3. If I switch from all gtk2 apps to all KDE apps will that solve the problem of gtk3 placing a completely unnecessary folder in my home?

CentOS 5 :: Permanently Remove Drive From Md Array (RAID1)

May 14, 2011

I installed a distro based on CentOS 5.5 (FreePBX distro FYI). It used an automated kickstart script to create an md RAID1 array of all the hard drives connected to the machine. Well, I installed from a thumb drive, which the script in interpreted as a hard drive and thus included in the array. So, I ended up with three md arrays (boot, swap, data) that included the thumb drive. Even better, it used the thumb drive for grub boot so I couldn't start up without it. I was able to mark the USB drive as 'failed' and remove from each array, and even change grub around to boot without the usb drive, but now each of the arrays is marked as degraded:

General :: Failed To Load "canberra-gtk-module": Libcanberra-gtk-module No Such File Or Directory

Mar 25, 2011

i installed firefox 4 and removed the old 3.X version. did a general update that my computer showed me was available then i noticed the first problem. firefox 4 would not launch when i clicked it, it would only launch when i clicked the gnome 3 applications button and then clicked and dragged the firefox logo to the desktop, then it opened. the second problem i am now having which at the moment is more bothersome is that after i closed the lid to my laptop and opened it up again after a while and logged back in and noticed that the ENTIRE gnome 3 environment was gone. no panel no menu nothing just the desktop and a few desktop icons. i tried the command "yum install gnome-shell" but it just sed that gnome 2.31.5-7 .fc14.i686 was already installed so it wasnt gonna do anything, then i tried the "gnome-shell --replace" command and it just said

failed to load "canberra-gtk-module": libcanberra-gtk-module no such file or directory.

General :: Permanently Fix Settings For Second Monitor?

Sep 5, 2010

I just bought a 31.5" HDTV and have it connected to my laptop as a monitor. My laptop monitor is cracked and pretty much useless so I would like to be able to keep it turned off and stick with my new monitor. So far, I have managed to accomplish all of this, just one problem, I will need to go through too long a process for every login to set it all up again. I'm hoping someone can help me simplify this and have everything done automatically while Ubuntu is booting or even right after login.

Mar 7, 2011

Now i want to disable my ssh server "permanently",which means it won't run unless i start it after i login.that is,it is disabled at boot time by default.
i have asked a similar question before,but i still have some confusions.
Say that now the ssh server is system is ubuntu 10.04. code...

General :: Cat Made The Screen Permanently Unreadable

May 2, 2011

Kernel, Slackware 12.0. I have a file named juan34. I was sure it was a plain text file so, instead of running first 'file juan34' I directly did 'cat juan34'. The result was everything echoed to the console are the ascii caracters greater than 127 decimal. In other words, the screen is unreadable.

I typed 'exit' but this did not remedy the situation. The login prompt was written with these strange chars. In another console I'm running a program which I estimate will terminate execution in 20 hours or more, so I do not want to reboot the machine.

When I worked in MS-DOS, I had (made) a program that reinitialized the 6845 CRT controller, fixing this problem (for this could also happen under that O.S.). But, if there is a solution for MS-DOS, all the more so there must be one under unix/linux.
