I have recently completed an install of Slackware 9.0 and I am noticing a few error messages I wanted to ask about. Any help is appreciated.
The first message comes when Slackware is booting up. It detects my network card and then insmod gives a few errors. At the end it says that it failed but the weird part is that I can still access the internet. Here is the error message:
8139cp:10/100 PCI Ethernet driver v0.3.0
init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or the output from dmesg
I would like to know if there is a solution to this error message, because my internet seems to be working fine. I have not checked it for speed yet but the card and connection seem to be working. Any help is appreciated. Thanks
Add the module 8139cp to /etc/hotplug/blacklist and the error message goes away.
I got the same error when i first installed 9.0 and its because hotplug cant see if its the 8139cp or 3189to module that should be loaded for the network card.
