Description Robert P. J. Day 2003-04-04 22:30:55 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
  lines 107-9 in /etc/init.d/pcmcia script, set of modprobe
commands, have arguments that end with ".o".  this is not
possible -- modprobe only takes the module name, not the 
file name.

  this will cause loading of any newly-built kernels to fail
to load the pcmcia modules.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. build a new kernel with pcmcia functionality
2. boot to new kernel

Actual Results:    pcmcia modules are not loaded

Expected Results:    pcmcia modules should load

Additional info:

  just get rid of the ".o" suffixes

Comment 1 Ivo Sarak 2003-04-07 16:30:07 UTC
Maybe that is why there is a bug:

Comment 2 Josiah Royse 2003-04-29 18:56:43 UTC
Here's where the directory that fools the /etc/init.d/pcmcia script comes from.

A quick fix: After you build a new kernel and reboot- type "rm -rf
/lib/modules/`uname -r`/pcmcia"  this directory is just full of symlinks.

# Backwards compatibilty symlinks for people still using old versions
# of pcmcia-cs with hard coded pathnames on insmod.  Remove
# _modinst_post_pcmcia for kernel 2.4.1.
.PHONY: _modinst_post_pcmcia
        cd $(MODLIB); \
        mkdir -p pcmcia; \
        find kernel -path '*/pcmcia/*' -name '*.o' | xargs -i -r ln -sf ../{} pcmcia

This appears to be a duplicate of Bug 81282  -- which is closed.

Comment 5 Jaap Haitsma 2004-02-24 17:23:00 UTC
Latest update of kernel-pcmcia-cs-3.1.31-16 for Fedora core has the 3
".o"s removed. This bug can be closed

Comment 6 Alexandre Oliva 2004-06-22 12:49:59 UTC
pcmcia-cs-3.2.7-1.5 still has .o extensions in these lines:
                /sbin/insmod $PC/pcmcia_core.o $CORE_OPTS
                /sbin/insmod $PC/$PCIC.o $PCIC_OPTS
                /sbin/insmod $PC/ds.o

Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2004-09-08 06:51:39 UTC
That's with insmod, which takes full pathnames.
