    modprobe: can't locate module scsi_hostadapter

    I'm running Mandrake 8.2, 2.4.18. 2 IDE hard drives, IDE DVD
    For some strange reason, I get several defunctioning modprobe's?
    After running a while I have several, they are all children to devfsd, can't be killed.

    Output of
    # ps -ax
    1793 vc/6 S 0:00 /sbin/mingetty tty6
    1794 ? S 0:00 /usr/bin/kdm -nodaemon

    I don't have SCSI? Could be needed by ATAPI/IDE-drives, but they work fine without this?
    In /etc/modules.devfs there are several lines scsi_hostadapter, but this file shouldn't be edited?

    hello,
    if you have a CD burner then it should be set up as a scsi device, else this does not matter. i am not really up on except for USB. in any event i would modify the modules.conf file and see if that helps.

    I don't have a CD-burner.
    In modules/modules.conf I can specify what to load - I can't specify what should not be loaded?
    This has happened on 2 computers, Mandrake 8.2 & 9.0.
    Both distro's installed several times, same thing happens every time.

    hello,
    is the boot loader telling it there is a SCSI device? e.g. is there a line saying hdc=ide-scsi or somthing similar?

    yes you should be able to prevent modules from loading, i am not sure how mandrake has set up devfs though...
