No modules available to load

Post by garethw » 2018/10/14 15:20:47

Hi All,

I'm attempting to harden my VPS install of Plesk 17.5.3 on a Centos 6.10 base and wanted to make a separate /tmp mount using a file.

I've created the file with dd, formatted it ext3 and added it to fstab with no problem but when I try and mount the file I get the following message
mount: Could not find any loop device. Maybe this kernel does not know
about the loop device? (If so, recompile or `modprobe loop'.)
I tried runing modprobe as the error suggested and got
FATAL: Module loop not found.
uname -r gives me 2.6.32-042stab127.2
running find /lib/modules/$(uname -r) -name *loop* -print gives me nothing
ls /lib/modules/$(uname -r) gives

Now, I'm not totally sure, and normally work on Ubuntu servers, but I thought that this directory should contain a whole load of directories with a load of .ko files.

Am I missing something here or do I have no modules available?

Unfortunately what you have there is not a CentOS system, it's an openvz container. It'll have no control over kernel modules etc so you'll need to talk to your hoster and get them to set it up on the host for you... or look for another provider who'll give you a real system not a container.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!
CentOS 5 has been EOL for nearly 3 years and should no longer be used for anything!

Ah, that would explain it, Thanks Trevor.

I will talk to my vps provider and ask them to provide access to the modules I need.
