    Unsupported Modules on SELS11


    Hi,

    I have few queries regarding support option available for SLES, before
    I ask you the query let me give you the background of it. I was going
    thru the release notes of SLES11 and in topic 9.4 Kernel Modules
    observed the following line *-Please remember that loading and running
    unsupported modules will make the kernel and the whole system
    unsupported by Novell. -*

    Now usually third party software/modules are not supported by Novell
    and taint the kernel when loaded. Following are the queries:


    *1) * Does this limitation applicable on SLES9 and SLES10? In my
    knowledge it is not applicable and SLES9, 10 and in those cases
    inserting unsupported modules *will not make entire system unsupported*.

    *2) * In many situations it is required to insert an unsupported
    module, so what could be the possible solution to overcome the
    limitation.
    *3) * How can a module made supported module or external module, so
    that the above problem can be overcome.
    *4) * To make a module supported by novell, who can be contacted and
    what would be the process for getting that support.

    Will appreciate quick responce

    Thanks

    Novell recommend to only use the modules support by Novell, he can't
    warrant to any other 3rd party modules likes any other co or org.
    You can find the module first in cd/iso.
    if you know what you do and the usage, you can insert the unsopport
    module,
