Fixes for pup_event_backend_modprobe

May 08, 2011 — BarryK
/sbin/pup_event_backend_modprobe is a script that gets called via a udev rule (see /etc/udev/rules.d/50-udev-puppy-basic.rules) in response to a kernel "add" uevent. The script may install a firmware tarball and load a module.

I reported recently about rerwin's "wary511_update-1" that I had to revert as my sound went awol.

I am now looking at each of rerwin's changes individually and implementing. So far I have examined points 1 and 2 in rerwin's second post in this forum page:

Yes, these are important bugs that rerwin has identified. The second one can result in the appropriate modules not loading for an SD or XD memory card. I have implemented fixes, differently from those that rerwin has done. I rebooted, to do a sanity check that it is sane, yep.

Note, I will be going through all of rerwin's other points as well, and this time I should be able to avoid whatever went wrong with my sound.
