Esas2r: driver will not be loaded



  • Hi All,

    I keep getting :

    esas2r: driver will not be loaded because no ATTO esas2r devices were found
    i2c-parport-light: adapter type unspecified

    whilst reading several posts, I understand it is safe to ignore, but I cannot find a fix - reason being when I get this message the computer pauses for about 4 minutes before proceeding… very annoying!

    Using latest Fog 1.0.1 with latest Tom Elliot Kernal.

    Any help would be good.

    Thanks

    While annoying, I’m very sorry, you may need to look into building your own kernel. My kernels are very much generalized and contain a LOT of drivers in them. This is WHY it’s taking so long to load. Some systems take longer than others as well. I don’t know why. If it’s that “frustrating” of an issue, build your own kernels and only contain the driver set’s needed for your particular system.

    that message may be the last message it gives you before waiting, but it is not necessarily the reason it is waiting. the computer is at that point booting a small operating system in order to do fog related tasks. that said, i have never seen it take that long. what kind of computer is this taking so long on?



  • In this case I would say that the kernel needs very long to load the drivers for the hardware. The only solution that I know would be to build a custom kernel. Take a look at this

    This is helpful too
