    Oracle Linux 6.3 TIPC LKM is missing...

    Geraldk-Oracle
      Hi All,

      Does anyone know what has happened with the tipc loadable kernel module in OL 6.3?


      In 6.2, it was here:

      # ls -lh /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/net/tipc/tipc.ko
      -rwxr--r--. 1 root root 218K Dec 10 2011 /lib/modules/2.6.32-300.3.1.el6uek.x86_64/kernel/net/tipc/tipc.ko


      But in 6.3, it is not longer present anywhere:

      # uname -a
      Linux OpenSAFfire1 2.6.39-200.29.2.el6uek.x86_64 #1 SMP Sat Jul 14 10:50:56 EDT 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

      # find / -name tipc.ko
      #


      The software I am trying to run (http://devel.opensaf.org/), uses the follow logic on startup to load the tipc module:

      TIPC_MODULE=/lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/net/tipc.ko

      function tipc_configure ()
      {
      echo "Inserting TIPC mdoule..."

      if ! test -f "$TIPC_MODULE" ; then
      modprobe tipc
      else
      insmod "$TIPC_MODULE"
      fi
      ...


      So if the tipc module is not found, it attempts to use modprobe:

      # modprobe tipc
      FATAL: Module tipc not found.


      Thanks,
      Gerald
