Question reason of using dm-mod


hi,

just finding out why we use dm-mod module in encrypting partition , and i have this problem when i want to modprobe it:
Quote:
Command failed: BLKROGET failed on device: Inappropriate ioctl for device
i khow that dm-crypt & aes modules are essential for device mapping and aes for standard encryption , but what for is dm-mod? and because of not being of it this error would happen?
and what must i do to fix it?

thanks

No, it's the other way around: 'modinfo dm-mod' would have shown you dm-mod is necessary for device mapping.
