Uhhh... If the code given by r.stiltskin was successful, then there is no need to do the file edit as per my post #83. Both do the same thing; to add a module to the blacklist file. And Yeah we were going to use the tett editor after copying the file as a backup (the command, cp)
At the present time we need to know if that module is blacklisted. So let's look. In order to just look at a file we will use the command "cat" for contatenate (sp??) and give it a path to that file (blacklist.conf) who's path (location) is "/" for root, in the top directory "etc" in a subdirectory "modprobe.d"... So that becomes this command:
a space between the command "cat" and what "cat" is going to act on.
the last line in that file should be -- blacklist sp5100_tco .
Is that so, or do we still have to make that happen ?
it is all a learning experience
woops r.stiltskin was faster with his post than I was// We will follow that guidance and if needed return to editing that file .
Bt the way, his explanation on the output is nice to realize //
