Fedora 1 Modprobe messages
Posted 11 August 2004 - 09:32 AM
I have searched on Google and not found this exact problem.
It may be relevant that I installed Fedora 1 as an upgrade to Red hat 9, in turn upgraded from Red Hat 8, so there may be some contamination. I now maintain using yum.

mentioned in the 'notification' message (it isn't exactly an 'error' message),
you'll probably get a good idea which driver is being modprobe'd for a device
you don't actually have installed.
viz: the message says "can't find block-major-7", so you check up on
this with // ls -l /dev | grep " 7," // (the stuff between the double slash chars)
You can do a quick check of the block major numbers of all active devices
and drivers by doing "cat /proc/devices".
