General :: How Hard Will It Be To Install Modules

Apr 19, 2010

I have a Toshiba Portege S100. Its about 4yrs old so Centrino and runs XP. The hard drive is grinding so I need to replace it. I figured it would be a good opportunity to look at Linux. So, I booted up the Ubuntu 9.1 CD and it didn't pick up the wireless card or sound card. Having looked around, it seems that this will need a little work.Well, the link I was trying to post mentions I need to install the snd-intel8x0 and ipw2200 modules.This doesn't look easy. Are there any distros that would make this process less painful?Alternatively, is this the sort of thing people would be able to help me with if I just said I wanted to get it working on Ubuntu or whatever distro I chose?

General :: Rc.modules Not Loading Modules At Startup?

May 11, 2010

I've been trying to load my pcmcia network card driver "xirc2ps_cs" at startup with no success. I have added "modprobe xirc2ps_cs" to the rc.modules file but it doesn't load at startup. Curiously, though, if I execute rc.modules AFTER the machine has booted it will load the modules just fine. Just not during the boot up process. Thinking that hotstart might have been causing problems I've disabled hotstart (chmod -x) temporarilly to remove it from the picture, but there was no change.

Dec 14, 2009

I'm trying to install some wireless drivers, but apparently I don't have a /lib/modules/<kernel>/build directory, which is causing the Makefile to throw an error. Is there a specific place I should point the Makefile at?

Ubuntu Installation :: Boot Error "modprobe: FATAL Could Not Load /lib/modules 2.6.35-22 Generic Modules No Such File Or Directory"

Apr 14, 2011

Tonight I installed ubuntu 10.10 (32 bit) on an external usb harddrive with a dvd I burned and I used my older desktop. I disconnected all internal and external drives first so everything had to be put on the usb drive I selected (only option available). I used the option to load extra software, use the entire hard drive, and let the software do it's thing. I basically had no options where to put things and it didn't have much choice.

When I boot the usb drive on my laptop (win 7 64 bit) by telling the bios to boot to it first... I get an error: modprobe: FATAL Could not load /lib/modules 2.6.35-22 generic modules No such file or directory. This message appears twice and then it does boot into ubuntu and seems to work fine. I'm new to this OS so that is an uneducated guess but the things I have done seem to be working. So exactly what is this error referring too? Is there a way to fix the problem or do I just ignore it.

CentOS 5 :: How Can I Install Per Modules

Jun 20, 2010

I have a dedicated server. It doesn't have any GUI (gnome or something like that), so i need to use terminal, which is hard for a non-advanced user. So i have a few questions:I'm hosting a CS server and a few other servers later on. But right now only CS server. With it i need to start another perl window, which updates the stats to the website and database.So how can i start both server, that program and maybe use the console at the same time?Another question is: when i quit the server, it automatically restarts. How can i just kill the process? I don't want to restart my server every time i want to shut down the CS one.

About perl: how can i install per modules and how can i know the translations of perl modules from windows to linux names?And is there any firewalls by default clean installation, which might 27500 port and any connections trough 3306 to the database on my web server? If no, how come, that my program is unable to connect to my website database?Will my own email server take a lot of resources? Which only i would use and wouldn't receive much mail? And are there any guides how can i do that?Will a web server, which wouldn't take much visitors each day take a lot of resources?

Fedora :: Can't Create / Install SELinux Modules

Jun 5, 2010

Trying to run Googleearth I got a SELinux denial as I would expect. So I did what I always do, and generated a policy using audit2allow. I have used this method to manage SELinux on various CentOS and Fedora installations before, I don't recognise this problem.I tried the GUI "SELinux Policy Generation Tool" but it closes itself a second after opening so I can't even explore this.

OpenSUSE Install :: Compiling Modules Against Kernel?

I am having some issues compiling kernel modules against the pre-built OpenSUSE kernel. Whenever I compile a module and try to load it, I get something like:

insmod fs/smbfs/smbfs.ko
insmod: error inserting 'fs/smbfs/smbfs.ko': -1 Invalid module format

OpenSUSE Install :: Yast Modules Always Restart?

May 22, 2011

I've got a weird problem since the update to 11.4: every time I use a yast module (the problem occurs with all of them), when I've finished (press OK or Cancel), it relaunch the module after the work is done. For example, launch the Package Manager, choice a package to install press OK : it performs the install and then relaunch the Package Manager. If you choose to quit, it will relaunch it... The only way to stop it to kill the process (or killx).The same problem occurs with the terminal version of yast. it's linked to a config file of yast under root or something so? I haven't found such problems reported on the internet.

OpenSUSE Install :: Remote Installation With Special Kernel Modules?

Feb 27, 2011

I want to remotely install OpenSUSE on one of my servers. I followed the instructions given at SDB:Remote installation - openSUSE, but it didn't work. (My server reverted back to the already installed system.) I think this has to do with a special kernel module (megaraid_sas) that is necessary for the raid controller. Without this module, the kernel cannot find any disk. Of course, the module is not included in the initrd provided by OpenSUSE. I know how to add files to the initrd, but I have no idea where I have to put the required kernel module and which config file inside the initrd must be modified to make the kernel load the module.

Jul 22, 2010

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/ kernel modules tree found for kernel ""

I tried to look into the directory and there was only modules under So I tried to change the command into: Quote: mkinitrd -c -k -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:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: ALSA Driver Install Failed At Building Modules

Oct 10, 2010

I am attempting to install the Linuxant ALSA driver to make my sound work properly (speakers muting when headphones plugged in). This worked on Lucid, but on Maverick the installation fails at the "building modules" stage. It directs me to a logfile, which I have reproduced here:

rm -f .depend *.o*
rm -f modules/*.o modules/*.ko
rm -f *~ out.txt *.orig *.rej .#* .gdb_history
rm -f doc/*~
rm -f config.cache config.log config.status Makefile.conf
rm -f utils/alsa-driver.spec .....
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.35-22-generic'
make: *** [compile] Error 2

The package partially installed I have no sound at all. I have kernel headers and every related -dev package I can think of installed. I'm running 64-bit; could that be an issue?

General :: Install Xubuntu 9.04 From Iso On Hard Drive

Apr 25, 2010

Having problems installing Xubuntu 9.04 to my Dell Latitude CPi (old, I know, but available...). Problem is that the CDROM is not working right and the BIOS doesn't support boot from USB so I can't do a complete live CD install via the CDROM or USB.What I'd like to do instead is install the ISO to the HD and run the install from that HD. Even with the CDROM problems I am able to load the Live CD installer from CDROM.

With that I think the best option will be to extract the ISO files to the HD (attach to another computer and extract to a FAT32 partition, then replace HD back in the latitude) then direct the liveCD bootloader to find the install files on the HD. Unfortunately I don't know the necessary commands to pass to the bootloader.

General :: New Kernel Only Has Two Modules?

I have just compiled a new kernel. When I boot into this new kernel and do an lsmod it is only running two modules.

I am running Ubuntu 10.04. The new kernel is The kernel seems to work fine but I need to know why and how it can only be running two modules.

General :: Install Slackware To An External Hard Drive

Oct 21, 2010

I recently had a laptop die on me. I, of course, then to recover the hard drive. I wanted to install slackware to a partition on my drive, so I can have a linux distro with me( also I have a FAT32 partition for shared space) I have a Slackware 13.1 disk one (which i need, since I don't need a graphical environment or anything), and proceedd to follow setup program. I have a 5GB '/' partition, a 10GB '/home' partition, and a 2GB swap partition. My ROOT partition is bootable. The setup program seemed to complete succesfully, but it won't boot. When I choose to boot from my hard drive (in the bios), it reverts to the slackware disk, if present, or the standard windows drive.

I installed LILO to the superblock of my external, because according to the setup the MBR option installs to "The MBR of your first hard drive", and I wasn't sure if that was right, since my first hard drive is my windows one. Since i'm not even seeing LILO, I think it has to do with installing to the superblock. I want to be able to boot a basic linux distro if needed from whatever computer I want. I'm not sure if slackware was the right choice, but it was one that I had worked with installing before, and knewthat you didn't necasarraly have to instal all the graphics stuff. I just want a shell. Sorry if my question sounds retarted, I'm new to the whole "Multiple drives, and operating systems" thing
