Description Gary Oliver 2003-06-20 09:41:35 UTC
/etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia contains invalid calls to modprobe when
the modules are located in a "preferred" category ('PC' var set.)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
At least 9  - don't know about previous versions

How reproducible:
I installed a "non-standard" kernel which placed modules in the
/lib/modules/<version>/kernel/drivers/pcmcia directory.  This caused
modprobe to be called with the "<modulename>.o" form (modprobe must
*not* have the trailing ".o" according to the man pages - and indeed
it will disallow the module name if present.

Steps to Reproduce:
See above.
Actual results:
See above.

Expected results:

Additional info:
Remove the ".o" from the calls to modprobe on lines 107, 108 and 109.
