    FATAL: Error inserting padlock_sha with 2.6.29.5-191 kernel

    I updated the latest kernel and other new maintenance tonight and started getting this error at boot... doesn't appear to be hindering anything. My encrypted partitions (luks, ext4) still open and are accessible.

    modprobe: FATAL: Error inserting padlock_sha (/lib/modules/2.6.29.5-191.fc11.i586/kernel/drivers/crypto/padlock-sha.ko): No such device

    See similar errors reported on ubuntu forums... with various recommended workarounds... update/add an alias, blacklist a module, fresh install

    I haven't tried any yet... need the system for work tomorrow so leaving it as-is for now.

    Comments? Suggestions for F11? Anyone else seeing this?

    I've blacklisted module padlock-sha and the error message has gone away.

    Yes. I have the same error.
    Everything seems to work though...

    I just exchanged a hard drive and set up new encrypted volumes on it for /home and /swap.
    / is still on the old CF-card.
    I thought it was just my own newbie tweaking of crypttab that generated the error but google finds the same problem for other people with recent kernels.

    I'm running 2.6.29.5-191.fc11.x86_64

    As everything still seems to work, my plan is to just hope it goes away with upcoming updates

    Check for a newer kernel
    Code:
    su
    yum clean all && yum install yum-presto yum-plugin-fastestmirror && yum update --enablerepo=u*g
    You might want to retry it a few times depending of the how in sync with master is the mirror(s) you land on.
    For safer browsing, use OpenDNS nameservers 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220

    Many thanks for the help, there sure were some updates.

    I wasn't aware that the you could be set on an outdated mirror.

    I understood most of the suggestion except "--enablerepo=u*g"
    What did that flag do?

    For some reason I am suddenly getting this error with the new kernel.

    Code:
    modprobe: FATAL: Error inserting padlock_sha (/lib/modules/2.6.29.6-213.fc11.i586/kernel/drivers/crypto/padlock-sha.ko): No such device
    As I understand it, it's no big deal, the padlock_sha refers to some hardware encryption chip by VIA that I (and you probably) don't have. So apparently it is loaded for people who have that chip so they can take advantage of their cool hardware, and for us it simply fails and nothing bad really happens. But the boot error bugs me a lot (as do all boot errors).

    Did the error disappear for you after updating from updates-testing? And what kernel are you running now?

    thanks,

    The new kernel did indeed remove the complaints about the missing module at boot.
    It also made the global pass for multiple encrypted devices work again so I only have to enter one pass instead of four identical

    Well I had decided to just let it be and wait for the new kernel to appear in updates. It did about a week ago, so now I am running kernel 2.6.29.6-217.2.3.fc11.i586, but the error is still there:

    Code:
    modprobe: FATAL: Error inserting padlock_sha (/lib/modules/2.6.29.6-217.2.3.fc11.i586/kernel/drivers/crypto/padlock-sha.ko): No such device
    So, does anyone have any more info on this, or maybe even a fix?

    thanks,

    Since I'm the one that started this thread, I'll confirm 2 things...
    1) problem still exists in 2.6.29.6-217.2.3.fc11.i586
    2) the blacklist workaround that I reported earlier still works. Edit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and add line with "blacklist padlock-sha" (without quotes, of course).

    Jontis, what version of the kernel did you pull from the updates-testing repo that made the error disappear?

    Re: FATAL: Error inserting padlock_sha with 2.6.29.5-191 kernel

    Thanks everyone, I also had this problem and figured out the solution.
    I was trying to connect to a microsoft pptp vpn through the KNetworkManager.

    I eventually found out I had to restart the network every single time i made a configuration change for the full effect of the change to work. So I went through and changed each vpn advanced setting that was hinted at in a tail -f /var/log/syslog. And restarted the network each time:
    service network-manager restart
    or
    /etc/init.d/network-manager restart
    whatever works for you.

    My final settings that worked to connect the vpn are:

    Login: [login name]
    Password: [password]
    NT Domain: [blank]

    PAP unchecked
    CHAP unchecked
    MSCHAP checked
    MSCHAPv2 checked
    EAP unchecked

    Use MPPE checked
    Crypto: Any
    Use Stateful encryption unchecked

    Allow BSD compression checked
    Allow Deflate checked
    Allow TCP header checked

    Send PPP echo unchecked

    I found that each setting played an important part in getting success, wether on or off

    Re: FATAL: Error inserting padlock_sha with 2.6.29.5-191 kernel

    It's BAAAAAAACCCKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!

    Just did a fresh install of F13 and missed where it allowed me to include 2 hdds that were encrypted under F12. I was able to bring them into F13 manually and made the necessary changes in crypttab & fstab so that at boot It would apply the passphrase to all 3 and mount my LVs. However I got the error at boot like the OP got:

    modprobe: FATAL: Error inserting padlock_sha (/lib/modules/2.6.33.3-85.fc13.x86_64/kernel/drivers/crypto/padlock-sha.ko): No such device

    Notice that it's the 2.6.33-3 kernel with F13. I have not tried the blacklist teak yet. Will update when I do.

    Re: FATAL: Error inserting padlock_sha with 2.6.29.5-191 kernel

    This error has returned with Fedora 15 uname -r = 2.6.38.6-27.fc15.x86_64

    Tried blaclisting padlock-sha with no change. I don't remember what finally stopped it last time with Fedora 13. The Ubuntu forum mentions addidng an alias for sha256_generic to sha256 in aliases.conf in /etc/modprobe.d This file does not exist in Fedora but there is a dist.conf that seems to list several aliases. Anyone know if this file is the same as alias.conf for sure or should I just create an alias.conf?
