Looking for file that holds the modules to be compiled with mkinitrd
 
Hi All,

I am sure this has come up before and if anyone knows a thread they can direct me to I would appreciate it.

We are running SLES 10.3, I am running Novell's support advisor and it is reporting some old hardware that is failing on bootup, one being a QLogic card and another being flex net network adapter. I was looking around for where the file or directory is that holds the list of modules to be loaded when compiling the kernel but SLES does not seem to match other Linux distro's, at least from the other posts I read for where to find these.

Any help?

Thanks

From the man page on mkinitrd:
Code:

-m module_list
          Modules to include in initrd, defaults to INITRD_MODULES variable in /etc/sysconfig/kernel.

You can specify the list, or edit what's mentioned in that file, I believe. Haven't dealt with SLES 10.3 in a while...does Novell support tell you anything about it??

Thanks TBone. Never asked Novell Support, you have to pay for the incidents so I try and not use them for things that are not critical.

Sorry for question, didn't even thing to do a man page on mkinitrd. I guess it is Murphy's law, when ever I do a man page on a command it is not in the man pages, then when I don't the answer is right there.

Thanks

Understand about the support...the tiered thing is great if you only use it every now and then. :)

No problem about the question...I had to go hunting around the first time too. Got old booting from CD, so I could load the RAID driver, so I could then CONTINUE the boot, which is how *I* learned. :)
