Re: can't synthesize pci hotplug events

Does your motherboard support pci-hotplug? Many dont. If not try adding pci-hotplug to /etc/hotplug/blacklist.

Re: can't synthesize pci hotplug events

I forgot to mention something in the error msg during boot:

::Starting hotplug daemon
which: no pci modules in (/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin:usr/bin)
can't synthesize  pci hotplug events

I checked in all the above dirs and found nothing relating pci modules (at least to my newbie eyes). All that I see relating to pci is in /etc/hotplug thus I tried
#cd /bin
#ln -s /etc/hotplug
didn't work. Should I link it to a specific pci file?
BTW, how to remove a symbolic link?

I guess that my motherboard supports pci hotplug. I have a partition with WinXPpro and never had problems regarding that...

I also tried adding the line "pci-hotplug" to blacklist, no sucess.
