oops screwed up my kernel

Postby iamclueless on Tue Jan 01, 2008 10:43 pm

was trying to sync my palm pilot through jpilot

when using xubuntu the forum advice was to enter

sudo modprobe visor

it worked there... i assumed i needed the same in Mint...

so i entered it in the terminal

now i get a warning message while booting up - something about the modprobe :p

i then decided to read what modprobe actually does..... ooops newbie mistake entering command you dont understand

CAN i UNDO this?????? or am i looking at a reinstall?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

yup im a noob

after further reading, i learn that command probably did nothing permanent

ive always had the modprobe error but only noticed it now... will post the exact error later and see if anyone can tell me whats going on
