Ubuntu :: Prevent Modules From Loading?

May 21, 2011

I am running 11.04 and would like to stop the loading of the parport and lp modules. I put entries in the /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf file and ran update-initramfs -u. After a reboot lsmod shows both modules as being loaded.

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.

Ubuntu Networking :: Modules Not Loading At Boot-time?

Sep 1, 2011

I've recently been having a lot of trouble trying to install a ralink 3062 driver on my ubuntu 11.04 desktop. There are quite a few excellent tutorials on this website. [URL]... In my case, however, adding the conflicting drivers to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf didn't prevent them being loaded at boot-time, so I could not make the change permanent. I eventually found a workaround online which I thought I'd share here. Once you have updated your blacklist and module list, use Quote:

sudo update-initramfs -u

I'm a beginner so I'm not sure, but I think the problem is that initramfs loads the conflicting modules into memory before the system comes to reading the blacklist and module files. Once you've done this, restart your system and you shouldn't have any further problems. P.s. As far as I know this only works (but should only be a problem for kernel 2.6 and later)

Debian Configuration :: Loading Modules At Boot?

Aug 29, 2010

I have to load the ip_conntrack modules every time I reboot. How do I get the iptables modules to load automatically at boot. It seems they are supposed to auto load when they are needed but they are not doing that. I have to do modprobe on them. also does anyone know where I can download all the modules available for iptables? I looked on the netfiler site and did not learn much.

Slackware :: 13.37 Isn't Loading The Modules - CPU Frequency Scaling ?

Jun 10, 2011

For some reason, it seems that 13.37 isn't loading the modules I need for cpu frequency scaling. I've edited /etc/rc.d/rc.modules so that CPUFREQ is set to on. On 13.1, this would mean the powernow-k8 module would be loaded for my AMD cpu, and the subsequent "ondemand" governor would be loaded. However, for some reason this isn't being done during the boot process. I've tried it using both the generic kernel and the huge kernel (I'd been using huge for a long time before without realizing it.) Has anything changed in 13.37 with regards to CPU frequency scaling?

Software :: Prevent Kdeinit4 - 100% CPU Loading?

May 20, 2011

There are thousands of threads in the Internet about kdeinit4 problem and I searched them for a solution but all I got is: it's a bug, accept it. There is this solution here and I added

as plamaiziere said, but this changed nothing.

So kdeinit4 loads my CPU 100%. Maybe someone has figured out how to prevent this from happening? I use IceWM but have KDE fully installed because I use a lot of apps from KDE group.

Fedora :: Loading Modules To Work With Card Reader Using F13?

Aug 7, 2010

I found a solution to my card reader problem in a another fedora post but when I type the code in terminal I get:
all config files need.conf /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
How to write this code so I wont get this error and I can load these modules and also how to edit the modprobe.conf.

The code is below, using fedora 13.
You must load these two modules to work with card reader.
First : Remove the card from the Reader!
AS superuser type in console :
1. /sbin/modprobe tifm_core <enter>
2. /sbin/modprobe tifm_sd <enter>

If you want to automate these modules loading do the following :
edit the /etc/modprobe.conf file
add these :
alias mmc_core tifm_core
alias mmc_card tifm_sd

Ubuntu :: Prevent Loading X During Startup After Error In Xorg.conf

Aug 22, 2010

I am using ubuntu 10.04 and made some changes in Xorg.conf to try enabling twinview. Unfortunately, Ubuntu just stops at the startup logo now. Is there a way I can stop the loading of X, so I can undo the error in Xorg.conf and hopefully make Ubuntu load normally again? Grub automatically loads Ubuntu, there is no Grub menu that allows loading of some alternative config.

CentOS 5 :: Prevent Device-mapper From Loading In Installer

Mar 5, 2009

I am trying to prevent the dm_mod and friends from loading during install.I am installing by PXE boot with NFS and kickstart files over http. This works fine for other machines.Ok, I have a Dell PowerEdge 2900 III with 8gig ram, PERC 6/i raid controller.The raid has 8 1TB drives in it, so the total size of the device is >2TB.There is also an SATA drive, which is NOT on the raid controller.

The problem is, I want to install CentOS on the SATA drive. The SATA drive comes up as a device-mapper drive, with a big crazy device name.This is ok, but the problem is, when the system goes to boot, it just says 'missing operating system'.I can't boot from the raid because it is large enough to require a GPT partition, and CentOS says it can't boot from a GPT partition.The SATA drive would work FINE if I could just prevent the damn device mapper from loading, so that I could install on the SATA drive in ordinary SATA mode.

I have tried re-squashing the stage2.img with /etc/modprobe.conf with alias dm_mod off and such, no luck.I also tried adding an /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist file, that did not work either.I also tried putting blacklist= dm_mod in the kickstart file, but that seems to be a fedora-only option and it kills my install. any ideas on preventing the dm_mod et. al. from loading at install time??

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.

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 :: 10.10 Python 2.6 Modules Not Found?

Jan 4, 2011

I am trying to import some Python modules into Ubuntu 10.10 (PySCeS and PyDSTool). If I download the modules and extract them into a directoy in my home directory, open that directory in terminal, and then import them into python (>>>import module_x) then it loads fine. However, if I am outside of the directories then it always returns an error saying the module is not found. I have tried putting the modules into usr/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages or dist-packages and usr/shared/pyshared etc but it never sees any of my modules. It also does this with modules installed from the repository. They are always "not found" but if placed manually in the working directory they are.

I have a minimal install and what to install another, this time with only the hardware drivers/modules my machine needs (for instance, I don't need software for Xeon processors as I don't have one, therefore don't want that stuff hanging around serving no purpose).

Ubuntu :: How To Write The Kernel Modules

Jun 6, 2010

I am trying to write kernel modules. And am running Ubuntu 10.04 x64. I have downloaded both kernel source and headers. Unpacked kernel source and made a /usr/src/linux symbolic link pointing to the src. Here is the output of running make:


make -C /lib/modules/2.6.32-22-generic/build M= modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.32-22-generic'
CHK include/linux/version.h
CHK include/linux/utsrelease.h


I am taking both the module and the Makefile from Linux Kernel Module Programming Guide book. I don't know what am missing.

Ubuntu :: Blacklisted Modules Still Get Loaded At Boot?

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?

Ubuntu :: OpenOffice Modules After LibreOffice Installation

Dec 7, 2010

I installed Libreoffice on my Ubuntu 10.10 (through wubi), and uninstalled Openoffice afterwards. Everything's ok. But then I continue to receive updates for openoffice modules (which are a lot btw). From the Software Center, currently installed are libreoffice modules together with (I think) their openoffice counterparts. Now the question is, is it safe to remove the openoffice modules? Or does Libreoffice need them, too? How do I remove them completely from the updates?

However, there is no such file on Suse 11.2, at least not in that location. I assume there's a Suse version somewhere else, anyone know what it is?
