FATAL: Module sd_mod not found [fixed]

HI,
I dunno whether the upgrade to kernel 2.6.8 made this error, but it seems that when i do modprobe sd_mod, i get that error.

Im using the ide kernel 2.6.8 stock kernel from pacman.
This seems to be hindering my hotplug for my mp3 player.

danke

Re: FATAL: Module sd_mod not found [fixed]

check to make sure that that module is not built in. if it is you cannot modprobe it and your problem lies somewhere else.

Hi dammit.

As sarah31 suggests, you'll find that sd_mod is already built into the off-the-shelf Arch Linux 2.6.8 kernel. If you try, as root:

modprobe sd_mod

you'll get an error message (which is what happens when there's no module available to load):

FATAL: Module sd_mod not found.

If you look in:

/boot/kconfig26

you should find the line:

CONFIG_BLK_DEV_SD=y

and this means that the SD block devices have been compiled into the kernel (a 'm' value would indicate that this is compiled as a module).

You should only need to:

modprobe usb-storage

to get your external USB devices (e.g., a thumbdrive) to work properly. Note, however, that you won't see any /dev/sd* devices until you've plugged in your USB device (and it's powered up, if that's needed as well, such as is the case for cameras).  You'll also need a mount point:

mkdir -p /mnt/usb

and then you should be able to:

mount /mnt/usb

Regards,

Win

thanks Win. I knew that some scsi modules had been built into the kernel now but was not sure if this one was and i had no way to check at the time.

Re: FATAL: Module sd_mod not found [fixed]

funny: if you want to be still kernel24 compatible, this module must stay in MODULES - there are no MODULES24 and MODULES26, but in my eyes, this would be the solution --- for now, i get some FATAL's but that's not worrying me :-)
