HELP: can not load module net-pf-4 and net-pf-5

Post by Yin Tan Cu » Wed, 28 Oct 1998 04:00:00



I just installed a system(RH5.1 kernel-2.0.34). everything went fine.
then I upgraded the kernel to 2.0.35 .

now the system complains:

when the system boots, it will go all the way upto

INIT: Entering runlevel 3
modprob : can not load module net-pf-4
modprob : can not load module net-pf-5
modprob : can not load module net-pf-4
modprob : can not load module net-pf-5

then it hangs , but if I press enter or space bar, it will continue.
I think it's the kerneld trying to load these modules, but somehow,
it can not find it.

I recompiled the kernel and installed it, and still doesn't work.

I also tried to not start kerneld at boot time , it doesn't work.

Please help me. I don;t what to try next.

Thanks

On my SlackWare-box I have in /etc/conf.modules, besides other things,
the following:
# These lines for cosmetic reasons, see
/usr/src/linux/Documentation/modules.txt
alias net-pf-4 off
alias net-pf-5 off          

Works for me.....

Yep, that's the deal

Just so you know.. net-pf-4 is the IPX kernel stuff and net-pf-5 is the
AppleTalkDDP kernel stuff.  Neither is required by the kernel (unless you
want / need / require Appletalk and/or IPX)  If you rolled your own
kernel, you 'prolly turned these options off from whatever kernel config
you did.

Please remember that www.dejanews.com is your friend.  Try searching

to solve this problem.

This is a common problem and is discussed quite often.

yes, this question is asked so often one wonders if there isn't a
better way.  therefore, the solution may be to fix modprobe to do the
right thing.  best would be if it looked for the modules and set up
the aliases appropriately.  alias net-pf-[45] to off isn't bad either.
that way if you are one of the few who actually use ipx or appletalk
you can turn them on.

1. error : module net-pf-4 and net-pf-5 not found????

From /usr/src/linux/Documentation/modules.txt (does the term RTFM mean
anything to you?):

You could add these lines as well, but they are only "cosmetic":

        alias net-pf-3 off      # no ax25 module available (yet)
        alias net-pf-4 off      # if you don't use the ipx module
        alias net-pf-5 off      # if you don't use the appletalk module
