Module autoloading no longer work with kernel 2.6.x
Since I installed kernel 2.6.0, module autoloading no longer works. I
thought this was a kernel bug, but it still persists in 2.6.1. I
installed the latest (unstable) module-init-tools and purged modutils.
Manually loading the modules with modprobe works fine.
I'm using devfs with the latest devfsd.
Some examples for modules that don't autoload: loop, floppy,
snd-emu10k1, lp, cdrom
The interesting fact is that on an initrd with same kernel and
module-init-tools the autoloading of the xfs module works correctly. I
can't test if the xfs and dm-mod module always works because / is xfs and I can't
test if other modules work in the initrd because it is to small but I
expect that the modules would all load fine in the initrd.
Anyone with an idea where the error might be?
Thanks in advance,
