Kernel 2.6 problems/qns
- kmod no longer autoloads my sound drivers. i have to manually modprobe
my sound driver first (snd-trident). i'm using ASLA with OSS emu. all built as modules where possible. i have the following in my modprobe.conf...
alias char-major-116 snd
options snd major=116
alias snd-card-0 snd-trident
alias char-major-14 soundcore
alias sound-slot-0 snd-trident
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss
- IDE cdrom doesn't work.
mounting gives the error: "/dev/cdrom is not a valid block device"
cat-ing the device gives: "/dev/cdrom: No such device or address"
/dev/cdrom is a symlink to /dev/hdc (major 22, minor 0). i have ide-cd compiled as a module (manually modprobing ide-cd doesn't work either). the compiled-in ide bus driver is able to detect the drive from what i can tell
(extracts from dmesg)...

i have the following line set in /etc/modprobe.conf
alias block-major-22 ide-probe-mod.
i don't know if this is the problem, but i can't find any module named ide-probe-mod or aliased to anything but commenting this line out doesn't help either. and yes, the drive and disc are fully functional (worked in 2.4.23)
is there something i must add/change in the new modprobe.conf to enable cdrom now? btw, i don't get in any errors in my logs.
- rmmod --all doesn't work anymore on modinitools, is there an equivalent command or swtich to remove all unused modules?
- is the bdflush daemon still required on 2.6? i get the following msg in my logs. "warning: process `update' used the obsolete bdflush system" can i remove bdflush safely?
