Subject2.5.56, modules, and RedHat Psyche
From
Date
Just got bit by this little code in /etc/rc.sysinit  on RH 8.0.92:

if ! grep -iq nomodules /proc/cmdline 2>/dev/null && [ -f /proc/ksyms ]; then
USEMODULES=y
fi

...

if [ -f /proc/sys/kernel/modprobe ]; then
if [ -n "$USEMODULES" ]; then
sysctl -w kernel.modprobe="/sbin/modprobe" >/dev/null 2>&1
sysctl -w kernel.hotplug="/sbin/hotplug" >/dev/null 2>&1
else
# We used to set this to NULL, but that causes 'failed to exec' messages"
sysctl -w kernel.modprobe="/bin/true" >/dev/null 2>&1
sysctl -w kernel.hotplug="/bin/true" >/dev/null 2>&1
fi
fi

Easy enough to work around, once you know about it. I noticed this trying to
figure out why iptables was working when the filters were built into the
kernel, but not as modules.

Hopefully this will save somebody else debugging time and/or eventually
produce a patch for rc.sysinit....
