I am trying to understand what the unix.o module does (and ksymoops?!).
Whenever I boot up I get an error message from insmod(or modprobe, can't
remember) about module unix.o and cannot create
/var/log/ksymoops/<date.time>.log because of read-only file system.
I looked in /var/log/ksymoops and it seems to be a list of logs of
module insertion but there are NO .log files only .modules and .ksyms
This doesn't normally seem to cause a prob, however, I tried not loading
unix.o and I get an unbootable system that gets stuck in an endless loop
printing an error:
modprobe: modprobe: cannot create /var/log/ksymoops/20011130.log
Read-only file system
Which is similar to the normal error but causes an endless loop.
I haven't found any understandable info on kysmoops so maybe someone can
Earlier in the year this caused me to have to reinstall but am pleased
to say I can at least rectify the problem without resorting to such
measures. Thanks in no small part to The List :-)
I am looking to upgrade to 2.4.x (10?) kernel and don't want to have
problems with loading modules during the upgrade.
Also, can someone give me some pointers on modules compilation? After
make modules; make modules_install; depmod -a
Do I need to do update-modules? Is that what may have caused me
