dmesg error


I found this in my dmesg:
Quote:
kmod: failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k scsi_hostadapter, errno = 2
kmod: failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k scsi_hostadapter, errno = 2
kmod: failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k scsi_hostadapter, errno = 2

Has anybody a clue what this is. Should I worry about, does anybody know how to fix it?

By the way i'm using Slack 10 with tha default kernel (2.4.26) and i have 2 IDE CD's and use ide-scsi.

It's not a big deal but you can remove it by commenting out "/sbin/modprobe ide-scsi" in rc.modules. Since you're calling it via the append line in lilo, it's not needed.

If i do that the module does not start by default and i cannot access my cd-roms until i modprobe it manually.

Personally, it is a "non error" error message. Uncomment the lines and ignore it. Better that than no optical drives

I've had this error message for years. Don't worry about it.

I kind of guessed this. Googling a little i saw it in many posted dmesg's. Anyway commenting the lines did not "fix" it either...it just stoped my cd drives from working.
Thank you both for your replies
I'm a new slackware user. It's definitely the best distro i ever tried

Try putting "alias scsi_hostadapter off" in your /etc/modules.conf

This didn't work either but the message dissapeared after i recompiled my default kernel.
I don't know how i solved this since i changed a lot of things, added himen support, used athlon insted of 486, striped my scsi hd and tape support, removed framebuffer support. probably the scsi hd support was to blame.
Thaks for your replies

I guessing at this, but since you've added hdc=ide-scsi to lilo.conf, I think that is why your CD-ROM fails when you comment out the module.

SCSI Simulation is no longer required (hasn't been for a while) and you don't need to make any modification to lilo.conf to get burners to work. You will need to rerun
Code:
cdrecord -scanbus
and see where your burner is.

With a single CD burner installed a typical burn command looks like this:
Code:
cdrecord -v -eject dev=ATAPI:0,0,0 somefile.iso

You do with 2.4.26 which is what he said he is using.

I had the same impression, that you don't need scsi emulation in the 2.6 series. To write a cd with the 2.4 kernel you need scsi emulstion.

And you would be correct

If the errors bother you, close your eyes during boot.
They are harmless.
