SubjectHow does ide-scsi get loaded?
Hash: SHA1

Please cc me on replies as I am not subscribed to the list.

I am running a standard debian 2.4.19-k7 kernel on a configuration that has an
ide dvd rom drive and a scsi cd writer.

Sometime during boot sequence (I can't find where in any log or dmesg - but
looking at the text flying by - soon after the scsi adapter is found and the
bus is being scanned for scsi devices) the module ide-scsi gets loaded.

a) asking on the debian-user mailing list has not elicited any useful reponse
b) grep -r ide-scsi /etc throws up nothing (ie there is not reference to
ide-scsi in modules or modules.conf or any initialisation sequence doing a
modprobe ide-scsi)
c) scanning all through the initrd.img (loaded through the loop device) does
not show any reference to ide-scsi either (although grep finds the sequence
in bin/mount and then hangs locking my keyboard)
d) modules.dep only shows ide-scsi needing other modules (ide-mod, scsi-mod)
