What is module char-major-10?

Post by Sak Wathanas » Mon, 02 Nov 1998 04:00:00



Everytime I run ntpdate to sync my clock, I get the following message in
the logs:

Quote:> Nov  1 04:04:38 fe ntpdate[24177]: adjust time server 193.63.109.3 offset
> 0.477032 sec
> Nov  1 04:04:39 fe modprobe: can't locate module char-major-10

What is "module char-major-10", and why is it looking for it? I did a quick
grep through the kernel srcs but can't seem to find it. Any pointers as to
where to look or install the module.

Oh yes, I'm running RH 5.0, kernel 2.0.32. My /etc/conf.modules says

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

Thanks

I believe it's looking for the real time clock module. I suspect the error
is harmless but you can get rid of it by compiling the kernel with rtc
support.

1. "Can't locate module char-major-10" Error

After recompiling the kernel with Red Hat 5.1, I got the following error
message on booting:

setting clock: modprobe: can't locale module char-major-10

A few people have posted about the same problem, so I thought it might
be helpful to mention that I solved this problem when I recompiled the
kernel with the "Enhanced Real Time Clock Support" option.

Kernel 2.0.30 didn't behave this way, so this is either a bug or an
undocumented change.

Follow-ups to comp.os.linux.setup only.
