This suggests that you did not apply some of the patches from under /usr/src/kernel as I had suggested in another posting. In order for you to be able to load modules into the CD-booted kernel, those modules have to be from a kernel patched and configured in _exactly_ the same way as the kernel on the CD. This means that you must apply all of the patches under /usr/src/kernel (for Owl 2.0, that's linux-2.4.32-ow1 and patch-cryptoloop-jari-2.4.32-ow1) _and_ use /boot/.config off the CD (your enabling the compilation of some drivers as modules must be the only change). > The question (partially) was solved switching of a disk on other controller of a same payment, > Which has earned at once, but has given speed of work with a disk > hdparm-t/dev/hdb1 ~ 3.3 MB/sec > And it on a SATA-disk! Well, the name /dev/hdb1 suggests that your system sees this as an IDE drive, and this low transfer rate is normal for 16-bit PIO mode (this happens when you have an IDE controller - or one pretending to be IDE - for which there's no driver in the running kernel). > But the most interesting, it after installation of system on a disk, > I at once could load the necessary module for the first controller! I am guessing that you had used your newly-built kernel for this installed system. So you finally had the kernel and the module match. > I plan to put Openwall as a platform for several servers, Great! > Whether there is what that the list configurations of the equipment, > To avoid similar difficulties? We do not have a "hardware compatibility list", although it might be a good idea for us to start maintaining one for the next release. For now, you'll have to refer to the default CD kernel configuration in /boot/.config to find out what drivers are enabled (without you having to build/load a module). -- Alexander Peslyak <solar at openwall.com> GPG key ID: 5B341F15 fp: B3FB 63F4 D7A3 BCCC 6F6E FC55 A2FC 027C 5B34 1F15 http://www.openwall.com - bringing security into open computing environments Was I helpful?
