Suggestion for Modprobe
Hi

I use RedHat 7.3 and after re-compiling kernel + modules I got the following warning / error message at bootup:

"Cann't locate module Block-Major-..."

After guessing and re-compiling kernel + module several dozen times, I found the culprit: there are several files on "/dev" directory related to non existent hardware device. You should delete this "/dev/.." files to eliminate the message.

Perhaps Modutils author can print/mention the device name that cause the "Cann't..." message to help debugging / solving the problem.

At present it is difficult to find the offending "/dev/..." files. You should run the following command:

ls -l /dev > out1.txt

Search the out1.txt for major device number of "/dev/..." files, usually before "," (coma) sign. Find the correct number related to the modprobe warning.

If the hardware device related to "/dev/..." file does not exist on your machine, delete this file.

Bug in insmod
Insmod handles the following legal command correctly:
insmod module symbol=value
But the following illegal command line throws insmod into an infinite loop:
insmod module symbol

E-mail with a possible solution has been sent to Richard Henderson.
