From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 4.0; .NET 
CLR 1.1.4322)

Description of problem:
loadable modules, such as irda nsc driver and i810_audio driver, fail 
to load up to kernel with insmod or modprobe command when starting up 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.modify /etc/modules.conf to include irda nsc driver and i810_audio 
2.restart linux
3.use insmod or modprobe command to load the kernel driver

Actual Results:  irda nsc device not found
i810_audio driver disabled, sound device as IO address and memory 
range used, as shown in dmesg, are found, but unable to allocate irq 0

Expected Results:  both kernel drivers should be loaded up to kernel

Additional info:

My linux machine is Asus M3N notebook with mobile centrino technology
Chipset Intel 855GM and ICH4-M and sound audio chips of Sigmatel 
AC97, National Semiconductor nsc irda chip as well as Agere/LT 
softmodem chip. Both sound audio and softmodem chips work under AC97 
controller bus. The only working IO devices recognised in Linux 9 are 
Intel/Pro100 VM Lan port and pcmcia cardbus socket which I use to 
connect to wireless network with wireless card. I am working with 
kernel release 2.4.20-20.9

This sounds like an interrupt routing problem in the kernel with your

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
