When I boot, it will go to PCMCIA and sometimes hang. Now, all of a sudden, when it hits hotplug, it goes through every line in modules.dep and says "unparsaple line" cciss (?) also gives an error. ndiswrapper -l says rt2500 driver present (no hardware detected - PCMCIA). When I do lsmod, nothing appears. What can I do to fix it?
I am still having trouble because it is not just the rt2500 with which I have a problem. Every module comes up "unparsable". when hotplug tries to load, it will literally go through every line in modules.dep, and give an error (....this takes about 5 minutes to run through). When it finnally finishes, I get a login prompt, I login as root, run lsmod and nothing is displayed except the column headers. No modules load..at all. I get the feeling something is corrupted somewhere, but what can I do to fix it?
I have no idea, but you could try making the rc.pcmcia startup script non-executable. If that is where the problem is; well, at least you know where the problem is. The file is found in /etc/rc.d, and being root you can issue the command chmod 644 rc.pcmcia to make it non-executable.
I'm still working at trying to solve this problem. Each boot takes about 5 minutes and results with no modules loading. While KDE wil still come up, most of my system's fuctionality is gone. Is there a way I can rebuild my modules.dep? How can I keep this problem from coming back in the future?
/sbin/depmod -F/boot/System.map-kernel-version -b /lib/modules/kernel-version.
Does this situation persist from install or did it occur after a kernel upgrade?
Did you try building the latest kernel.org kernel yourself?
*Wrt your other thread, next time please use the "bump" function to get your thread back to the top of the forumlist.
one day it just "happened". I don't know why, it just did. I had a clean, full install running for a while. The only thing I can think of is LIRC. It was the most recent thing I installed. I was trying to configure it but it never detected my built-in IR port.
I was not aware there was a bump feature. Now that I am.... how would I do it?
