slackware 9.0 install promble with hotplug


I have a box with slcakware 9.0 installed.But there is a promble with me.
If I say "yes" for the hotplug active option when install,the system will be booted and detect pci cards with some error message,eg."insmod 810.ng.gz failed" or "insmod 8139too.o failed "(or something like that.sorry,I colundn't more when booting).The system will load all kinds of modules,but computer will reboot in one or two minutes.
If I say "no" for the hotplug active option when install,the system can be booted narmol without detecting pci cards or error message,the computer won't reboot ,but I cann't use my sound car or video card ,etc..I found the system loads only tow modules.
What can I do with this promble?
Thanks!

Re: Re: slackware 9.0 install promble with hotplug

i was getting messages similar to that, and what i did was add the module name to the bottom of the /etc/hotplug/blacklist file.

for example, using your messages, i would experiment by adding one or more of the following:

i810-tco
i810-tco.o
i810_rng
i810_rng.o
i810

etc. to see which one/s turned off the errors. you might have to experiment a little to see what format is needed (i.e., with the .o, without the .o, etc.). that worked for me, but i didn't have the reboot problem you mentioned having. still, i think it's worthwhile to blacklist the ones you are getting errors about, and then go from there.

You are right this is the solution.. sometimes you need to reboot twice cause after the first reboot sometimes your still get errors.. just try a second reboot.. they will be gone..

Thanks!
I have done so.The error messages disappeared,but the computer still auto reboot.
I find the hotplug actully work though simulating pci cards hotplug to detect and load proper modulers when boot(see /etc/rc.d/rc.hotplug).So I do as follow
boot and login, lsmod >/root/tmp.txt
boot from slackware and mount /dev/hxx /mnt
mv /mnt/etc/rc.d/rc.hotplug /mnt/etc/rc.d/bakrc.hotplug
mv /mnt/etc/rc.d/rc.modules /mnt/etc/rc.d/bakrc.modules
edit /mnt/etc/rc.d/rc.modules to activate proper modules in the /mnt/root/tmp.txt
Now I can enjoy myself.

The same issue is addressed in this thread.

I think they found the reason...
