#4638 closed bug (fixed)

Kernel tries to load a directory as a driver

Reported by: colin Owned by: waddlesplash
Priority: normal Milestone: R1/beta2
Component: System/Kernel Version: R1/alpha1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Platform: x86


When creating a new directory (e.g.: net) in /boot/home/config/add-ons/kernel/drivers/dev/ following message appears in the syslog:

KERN: Could not load kernel add-on "/boot/home/config/add-ons/kernel/drivers/dev/net": Is a directory

This is a reproducable bug, at least in R1/alpha1 (hrev33109).

The message in the syslog seems to be the only side effect of this bug.

I would expect the kernel not trying to load a directory as a driver at all. Thus no message that made me think, something went wrong with the driver installation.
