insmod complaint at boot time
I have a Redhat 9 with 2.4.28 running.
I noticed a strange thing. I use a third party module (a driver) - say, xxx.o For some time, I didn't wanted it to be loaded. So, I renamed it as old_xxx.o. Upon rebooting, this module GOT loaded (with its new name old_xxx). Then, I moved this file to another folder.
After that, on reboot, it complains at boot time:
insmod: ........ xxx.o
saying missing modules or some such thing.
The strange thing is, I don't even have these modules in modules.conf.
Any help is appreciated.
