Bringing up interface eth0 error


Hi people i seem to be getting this error all the time

can any one tell me whats going on please ( OS is Trustix 2.1 )

On boot this error comes up when trying to load the eth0 from boot up screen

Bringing up interface eth0: modprode: Note /etc/modules.conf is more recent than
/ lib/modules/2.4.26-1trfirewall/modules.dep.

I tried do a touch / lib/modules/2.4.26-1trfirewall/modules.dep

and that didn't work, its say No such file or directory.

any one else had this program

TT

Strange, its suppose to update/generate the module dependencies file (ie modules.dep and the likes)
try running "depmod -v" and see what's happenning

I got a USB card in there as well, would that cause any probs you reckon ?


My /etc/modules.conf

alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
alias eth0 8139too
alias usb-controller usb-uhci
alias usb-controller1 usb-ohci

And in my /lib/modules folder i seem to have two folders one called ( 2.4.26-1tr ) and the other is ( 2.4.26-1trfirewall )

that's not necessarily an error, just a notice.
I haven't used Trustix before but does it have some kind of init script that tries to automatically detect and configure hardware on boot?

Nothing, just wanted to see if depmod is doing its job
The message should be harmless and safe to ignore, but if you're really annoyed try this cheap fix: add "depmod -a" to the script that brings up your eth0, before insmod/modprobe.
