Question [solved] modprobe - simple question


Under Redhat 9:
bash: modprobe: command not found

I didn't do a complete installation, so that may be why.. what package do I need to install to get modprobe?

you'll already have it on there. i guess you're just not root? it'll be in /sbin/

If you use the "su" command to switch to root, you must execute it as "su -" ... the "-" flag by itself means to process the login files, which includes setting the root's PATH variable correctly. Otherwise, stuff like /sbin and /usr/sbin won't be on the PATH.
