Question How to remove usblp module?


I am getting this "Failed" message at boot concerning loading usblp module - it says I have it already compiled into my kernel. Now how do I go about safely removing it, 'cause I obviously don't need it? Thank you.

And another (minor) issue: Is it considered normal to get "Failed" at boot when it says "Initializing interface eth0"? Mind you, I have DSL connection. It works fine after I login to X, it just bugs me to see that message.

you can't remove it if it's in the kernel. What you can do is recompile the kernel and have usplp as a module.

eth0 should come up but if the boot isn't hanging and it's up once you're in X, not much to worry about. I get it sometimes - don't really know why but it seems harmless.

Excuse my ignorance, but if it's in the kernel PLUS it is a separate loadable module (right?), can't I just remove the module and leave the kernel be?

Either it's compiled in the kernel or it's a loadable module but not both. Your startup scripts expect it to be a module so that's why you get that message.

Did you compile the kernel yourself or did you download it from somewhere? If you downloaded it from mandrake cooker or something, you might wanna report it - it's kind of a bug.

Yeah, the kernel was precompiled from Cooker's srpms. So there's no way to manually modify scripts you mentioned? Curious thing is, once in a while (like 1 in 5) the module actually loads successfully

oh, you could modify the scripts. But I think it'll be a mess to track down where and how exactly to make the modification. It can break things. But if you wanna take a look at how things work, I think the first place to look would be /etc/init.d/usb as far as the usblp thing is concerned.

the module should never get loaded. It might be that sometimes it just doesn't give you the error message. I get that, too, with usbkdb and usbmouse. I haven't compiled these at all, so usually there's a complaint but sometimes I can boot with no complaint. Kinda strange, but it's working so I don't worry about it too much.
