Error Message "modprobe: QM_MODULES: Function not implemented"


1. I have recently starting compiling custom kernels. I am using Slack 10.2 with a 2.6.15.5 kernel.

2. When I try to generate a modprobe.conf file with the following command:

generate-modprobe.conf /etc/modprobe.conf

I get the following error:

modprobe: QM_MODULES: Function not implemented

Warning: not translating path[toplevel]=/lib/modules/2.6

3. The system then goes on to create /etc/modprobe.conf with seemingly normal content. Here is an example trimmed a bit to save space:

alias plip0 plip
alias plip1 plip
alias tunl0 ipip
...
...
options sb io=0x220 irq=7 dma=1 dma16=5 mpu_io=0x330
install binfmt-0000 /bin/true
...
...
install usbmouse /sbin/modprobe --first-time --ignore-install usbmouse && { /sbin/modprobe hid; /bin/true; }
install wacom /sbin/modprobe --first-time --ignore-install wacom && { /sbin/modprobe evdev; /bin/true; }
remove hid { /sbin/modprobe -r keybdev; /sbin/modprobe -r mousedev; } ; /sbin/modprobe -r --first-time --ignore-remove hid
remove ov518_decomp /sbin/modprobe -r --first-time --ignore-remove ov518_decomp && { /sbin/modprobe -r ov511; /bin/true; }
remove usbmouse { /sbin/modprobe -r hid; } ; /sbin/modprobe -r --first-time --ignore-remove usbmouse
remove wacom { /sbin/modprobe -r evdev; } ; /sbin/modprobe -r --first-time --ignore-remove wacom


4. Why the error message?

5. I have installed module-init-tools-3.2.

6. Thank you for any assistance you may have to offer.

can you prove that module-init-tools is installed? could you have overwritten it by installing modutils?

1. Thank you for the suggestion. I too wondered if I might not have messed up the module-init-tools installation. So I did a complete reinstall of Slack 2.6.13. I then installed the 2.6.15 kernel and ran: generate-modprobe.conf. The problem persists:

modprobe: QM_MODULES: Function not implemented

Warning: not translating path[toplevel]=/lib/modules/2.6

2. As a test I compiled everything into the kernel with no module loading and the system runs very nicely. So I guess that I do not really need loadable modules right now, But then as another test I tried to install a module with modprobe then I ran lsmod and it worked just fine.

3. make modules_install clearly installed the modules. They show up in modprobe -l. Some of those modules show up in /etc/modprobe.conf some don't. Only those modules in the modprobe -l listing can be installed. Those others found in /etc/modprobe.conf cannot be installed.

4. For now I give up. The system seems to work. I do not know why it works, but it does. If anyone has any suggestions as to references that might help me figure this out I would appreciate them. In the meantime I am moving on to easier problems like RAID and SAMBA.

5. Thank you for your time and assistance.
