booting mess!


hello. I have 2 questions to make:

a. How can I tell to the kernel to forget a device (everytime I boot i tries to installs it, and fails and gives warning and so on..)

b. I have to execute (while booting) this command:

echo -ne "\033(K\033)K" > /dev/tty

I have it in rc.font
rc.font is executable and runs while booting, yet I get an error about the /dev/tty..

I wanna have this echo on all tty..

help is needed, thanks in advance

As to your first question, I don't know enough to pinpoint the problem. What is the output from dmesg?

Your second problem is easier to answer. Change echo -ne "\033(K\033)K" >/dev/tty to:

for tty in /dev/tty[0-9]*;
do echo -ne "\033(K\033)K" >$tty;
done

This will output to every tty on your computer.

Which device does it try to install? What is the output from running dmesg? Is it definately the kernel or is it kudzu?

I have no never used slackware however if you want a definate solution, try renaming the module file (somewhere in /lib/modules/`uname -r`/drivers/) to some other name or moving it into your home directory (or anywhere that insmod won't find it). This should change the error to a module not found error, but this should start up quicker.
