3 identical systems


I have 3 systems all running slackware 13.37

They are showing different lsmod listings

On one machine I have to manually add the network driver.

Any thoughts on why this might be

The base install for all is the same. They are all upgraded at the same time via slackpkg. Noticed the issue after an upgrade but on the one system is affected.

Thanks in advance for help troubleshooting this!

They are not identical then. This assumes you did exactly the same and proper install to each.

It is rare that systems are exactly the same. Outside may be exact but components change each day on most lines.


Try it all again or try another distro in case the installer had some issue and confirm.

They all worked the same prior to the upgrade, all three machines had an up time of 116 days. I really do think they are identical. I ordered them all from dell in the same day. The serial numbers are incremented by one digit.

If all was OK prior to the update via Slackpkg, then I would look at the Slackpkg configuration files. Perhaps different mirrors in /etc/slackpkg/mirrors? Or differences in /etc/slackpkg/blacklist?

They may all be SIMILAR. Have you taken out the NIC's and looked at the components on them? It is quite possible that they may all have GbE cards, just different chipsets.

I haven't taken out the cards, the should be on board cards anyway.

when i try to rerun slackpkg update after checking the mirrors as suggested which are the same i get the following error.

/usr/libexec/slackpkg/core-functions.sh: line 105: /bin/uname: cannot execute binary file

The ARCH values in slackpkg.conf are now different. You can remove
ARCH from there, and slackpkg you use your current ARCH or you can look
at slackpkg.conf.new or slackpkg.conf manual page to see the new valid
ARCH values

It sounds like you mixed 32 and 64 bit versions.

How would I do that if I am updating off of a mirror. They are all set to

ftp://carroll.cac.psu.edu/pub/linux/...kware64-13.37/

If that is what i did is my system recoverable?

Your mirror URL is for Slackware64. Did you install 64 or 32 bit Slackware? You could also check the output of 'uname -a'. If you see x86_64 in the ouput then you have a 64bit kernel.
If you have a 32bit kernel, then change the mirror to slackware-13.37 and rerun Slackpkg. i.e.
Code:
slackpkg update
slackpkg install-new
slackpkg upgrade-all
slackpkg clean-system
Be careful with the last command, as it can remove packages you have installed that are not part of official Slackware.
This should successfully recover.

That doesnt mean that they will all have the same components. Even if they have got the same components, that doesnt mean that they have the same firmware, etc..

One more thought on the "similarity" of the three machines: You mentined that all three had 116 days of uptime - that is a relatively long time during which they certainly had different histories.

So one important question would be what is the nature of those separate histories, and what is most different about the history of the one that is different.
