Hi,

I have just installed the latest quickcam.o driver for my Quickcam Express webcam and want to have it loaded automatically at boot up. I seem to not be able to find any definitive information about where to place the

CODE
modprobe quickcam.o


command.

I suspect that I should place it in /etc/rc.local. Would this be correct ?

I am running RedHat 2.4.20-8.

Thanks in advance.

Good news !! I am adding this update from my linux system.

I started up linux in rescue mode as you suggested, however when I tried to run fsck /dev/hda7 I was informed that it was already mounted. As I did not mount it, I did not know how to unmount it.

I tried chroot /mnt/sysimage to see if that would help (but it didn't).

What I ended up doing was running shutdown -r -F now. This actually failed, and I guess this is an effect of being in rescue mode, however it was sufficient to set the (-F) force file system check on restart.

When I next started my system the file system was checked and I guess repaired as everything seems fine now.

Guess who is going to back up their data tomorrow wink.gif

I wonder if there is a way to force a filesystem check on start up by modifying the parameters in grub.

Thanks for your prompt response.

I am running RedHat 9.0 2.4.20-8 and my last shutdown (that I was able to perform) failed. Since that time, when I try to start up linux I get messages such as:

Enabling local file system quotas:
...... rc.sysinit /var/run/utmp no such file or directory

This message is repeated for several other files too.

I tried 'linux rescue' mode and mounted the drive that has all my data. The thing that is scaring me is that the directory that had all my data is empty.

I have pretty much figured out that my filesystem is messed up and I am pretty certain that the data is still there. Unfortunately I have no idea what to do next.

Any ideas and suggestions would be appreciated.

Regards,
Trevor
