hi roberts,

thank you for adding ssb module to base.
but it's not loaded at the usual booting... i didn't blacklist this module as recommended lately.
ifconfig shows only the loop-device.
do i need additional bootcodes or  to load a further module-package?
i add my dmesg and my loaded modules to this thread.

thank you for your help.

With AppBrowser / Local I can load extension from anywhere in the file system. It is convenient during testing extensions. With ScmBrowser I can't do that, I have to move it to the production directory /tce/optional and install from there and remove when testing finished.

I've just checked my machine and ssb loads on boot - I don't have hardware that requires b44 though...

hi juanito,

as you can see in my modules-list, there is no ssb-module:
