NLS modprobe error... What script is loading this?


Hey all, I'm on a near-fresh install of Slackware 9.0

Compiled a good 2.4.21 kernel with everything I need, no problem.

On boot, I get a modprobe error, right after fsck checks and right before hda1 and proc are mounted...

Modprobe : can't locate module nls-iso8599

or something similar. I know this is native language support, etc, but it's compiled into the kernel, and cant for the life of me find what script it's being modprobed from.

I've checked all the files in /etc/rc.d/ directory with

cat * |grep nls

comes up with a couple commented out lines, but that's all.

Not really a problem, just an annoyance.
Help me find this

That's caused (my wild guess) by
another feature of Slack 9 that makes
me stick with 8.1 :)

Give your /etc/hotplug directory a closer
look, and play with /etc/hotplug/blacklist

Cheers,

Thanks for the reply, Tink.

I ask some questions here that get buried before anyone knowledgable notices them heheh,

I fixed it by recompiling the modules and including the nls module, even though I won't be needing it.

From there, I can blacklist the module and clean it up. Not having it loaded, will alleviate the error, and my new kernel is just as cool now.

In my experience this is almost *always* caused by including FAT(32?) support in the kernel.

Your error is probably because you recompiled your kernel, said 'Yes' to FAT support, and said 'No' to NLS.

FAT requires NLS due to the DOS naming conventions.
