I have Fedora 2.6.29. When Im trying to laod a kernel module by using modprobe, its throwing an error message 'Module not found'.
Also, when I use 'lssci' command to see the list of SCSI devices, this also doesn't work, and throws an error 'Command not found'.
However, I have used insmod to load my module and I am able to see its entry in /proc/scsi/scsi file, but why 'modprobe' and 'lssci' are not working. Is there any way to resolve this problem?
I have tried using /sbin/modprobe and /sbin/lsscsi also , but they are still not working.
Is there any package which I can install, if there is any, how I can install that. When I do 'rpm -q modutils', it says 'modutils is not installed'.
Distribution: pclos2016, Slack14.1 Deb Jessie, + 50+ other Linux OS, for test only.
Post # 1 :
I have Fedora 2.6.29
That is Fedora 11.
But there are no differences between versions,
for 'module-init-tools' + 'pciutils', so far concerns
the commands, they provide.
The two packages are also usualy installed by default.
Thanks to everyone for helping me till this time. I have installed the packages for lsscsi and module-init-tools. I am able to use lsscsi successfully now but still facing some issue with modprobe. When I use modprobe <module name>, its gives an error, <module name> doesn't exist.
I have tried this with and without root, and with and without /sbin path, but still its not working. However, I could install my module properly and able to see it in 'lsscsi' output,and also in /proc/modules file. I have tried evrything what all is suggested here in above comments, but something is still missing!!
If it is a 3rd part module you should tell us how you installed it so we can point out what's missing. Generally, for a 3rd part module, you should build and install it. Afterwards, you should issue a "depmod -a" and then try to use "modprobe <module name>".
I have installed the package 'yum install module-init-tools' for modprobe and when I do 'whereis modprobe', I am able to find it in /sbin/... path. But, still I am not able to load my module using 'modprobe <module name>.It's giving the same error '<module-name> not found'.
I have tried 'depmod-a' command also, but still its not getting through.
