Oracle Linux 6.3 TIPC LKM is missing...

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 (, 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 "$TIPC_MODULE" ; then
modprobe tipc
insmod "$TIPC_MODULE"

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

# modprobe tipc
FATAL: Module tipc not found.
