kmod : Failed to exec /sbin/modprobe
OK, What I am trying to do is install a new kernel (2.4.25) on a debian server. (The HP Officejet Drivers need >2.4.20)
Now, I have gotten a fair way, It'll even boot, until it comes to loading modules, upon which It repeats into infinity :
kmod : failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k binfmt-0000, errno=8
Now, I have checked, /sbin/modprobe exists as a symlink to /sbin/insmod .
I thought at first taht this might be because it doesn't like the symlink, so I mv'd the symlink and cp'd insmod to modprobe. No go. The symlink is now back in place.
Another possible solution I found was compiling support for all binary types into the kernel. Done, and it still doesn't work.
I have tried adding alias binfmt-0000 off to my modules.conf. No go there either.
