Description of problem:
# grep initscripts /var/log/yum.log
08/19/04 17:20:05 Updated: initscripts 7.62-1.i386
08/21/04 10:52:04 Updated: initscripts 7.64-1.i386
08/21/04 16:47:49 Updated: initscripts 7.66-1.i386

the problem exist since 20040821,
i did not reboot between the updates 7.64/7.66

some modules in /etc/modprobe.conf are not loaded while booting.
eg. bttv, snd-es1938, fdomain

result: starting tvtime fails as user.

as root:
# modprobe bttv
# modprobe snd-es1938
# tvtime

all is ok as root but not as user

after logout and new login as user
tvtime works now as user

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
initscripts-7.64-1 ?
initscripts-7.66-1 !

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot into kernel >= 2.6.8-1.525
2. login as user
3. start tvtime
    

Actual Results:  tvtime fails as user

Expected Results:  all modules should be loaded while booting like
expected

Additional info:

this problem exist only with kernel >= 2.6.8-1.525
booting into <= 2.6.8-1.525  all is ok!

# rpm -qa kernel | sort
kernel-2.6.7-1.478
kernel-2.6.7-1.517
kernel-2.6.8-1.524
kernel-2.6.8-1.525
kernel-2.6.8-1.526

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2004-08-23 19:17:45 UTC
This is more likely to be due to udev than anyting else.


Comment 2 shrek-m 2004-08-27 14:08:42 UTC

kernel-2.6.7-1.517
kernel-2.6.8-1.524

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2004-08-27 15:57:10 UTC
initscripts-7.70 now loads modules on bootup; that's where the fix is
(most likely).
