Description Larry Bartash 2004-09-28 23:36:59 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040926 Firefox/0.10 Description of problem: # Everything else (duck and cover) for module in $other ; do modprobe $module >/dev/null 2>&1 done In the section above in rc.sysinit, the modprobing of usb modules at this stage works fine. However, after the system has booted completely, before you can even login, the system reboots. It then happens over and over again, until you boot with a rescue disk and comment this section out. If you comment them out, boot, then login. Modprobing the usb modules does not cause system to reboot. System runs fine. Is this a usb kernel module problem or something awry with my particular motherboard? MSI motherboard MS-6728 (865PE Neo2 Rev1), latest bios. Another devel system on a different motherboard does not exhibit this behavior. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): initscripts-7.84-1 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. yum update (gets new initscripts) 2. reboot 3. pray it works this time (hmm doesn't) Actual Results: Keeps rebooting before you can login. Must boot with a rescue disk to comment out the section. Keep the usb modules from loading. Expected Results: System should not reboot and everything should work including the usb modules Additional info: This started happening long ago when the initscripts was first changed to autoload the modules in rc.sysinit. This problem seems to have begun when Rawhide began using udev, kernel 2.6.8 (currently 2.6.8-1.541), and changed initscripts.
