You know you're right, in my frustration with the install, I was not
careful in how I presented my statements.
The reason the modules were not there? Because RH's up-to-date updated
the kernel (2.4.14 to 2.4.18) and choked it seemed. So I was wrote a
post about my experiences and was about to send when I realized I had
mis-configured evolution for my email login name... no biggie, but the
open mail window would not recognize the changes... so I selected the
text, selected edit/cut and wen to past it into a new window..when
everything was gone... nothing in the clipboard.
Sorry, but that just pissed me off. To lose that for something so
trivial as cut and paste...
As for modules, have you missed all my posts over the years regarding
recompiling the Kernel? I am well familiar with compiling kernels and
loading modules.. Have you all forgotten it was my how-to on compiling
the kernel for CD-RW support that Caldera used? Or that I have coached a
number of people through it on this very list a variety of times over
the years for things like sound, unusual net drivers, accelerated video
I may not be an expert Coder, but I am pretty damn good with the OS.
So please, forgive my frustration, I was tired and depressed (I lost a
family member over the weekend that only hit me hard after the funeral)
and the RH mess just pushed all the wrong buttons at the wrong time.
Like I said, I expected a whole lot more from a Billion Dollar company.
And like I said in other posts, Linux is at the point where these
problems are just plain dumb ... sigh ... to see the same niggly issues
