modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module block-major-72

Hi, i've redhat Red Hat Linux release 8.0 (Psyche) with 2.4.18-14smp Kernel.
I've recived the following in the /var/log/messagges:

Sep 1 00:10:14 loadwr01 modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module block-major-72
Sep 1 00:10:15 loadwr01 modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module block-major-65
Sep 1 00:10:15 loadwr01 last message repeated 9 times

What does it mean, what's the problem, what modprobe is trying to load?

we found in the device.txt :

block-major-72 = Compaq Intelligent drive array, first controller.

block-major-65 = Scsi Disk Device

block-major-48 = PCI raid controller, first controller.

block-major-105 = Compaq next generation Drive Array, second controller.


thanks

Presumably this is the Compaq Array controller module 'cciss'.

Have a look in /etc/modules.conf, AFAIK that's where modprobe will look to see which module to load.

If you don't need the device, you can always add an alias to 'off'.

# grep "block-major-72" /etc/modules.conf
alias block-major-72 off

To look for the device node (both block- and char-...) in /etc/
ls -Rltr /dev/ | grep "72,"
