/misc/dgap.ko': -1 File exists error when starting dgap driver

Hello all,

I am running Ubuntu 8.04 amd64. I installed dgap-1.3-6 just fine. I can run mpi etc but when I load the driver the screen just flickers and it sends me back to the menu. When I try to manually start the service it gives me this error:

Loading dgap driver …insmod: error inserting ‘/lib/modules/2.6.24-16-server/misc/dgap.ko’: -1 File exists

Does anyone have any ideas?

Try the 1.3-15 version instead:

My mistake. I mean to type 1.3-15. I tried 1.3-6 earlier before I got it to install. That was just a mental lapse. I followed the instructions in this post:

So I do have dgap-1.3-15 installed now. But I can’t start it.

Sounds like you may be missing the symbolic link to bash. Try the following:

sudo rm /bin/sh
sudo ln -s /bin/bash /bin/sh

Then try rebuilding the driver to see if MPI works better.
