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.
# modprobe bttv
# modprobe snd-es1938
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):
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
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
This is more likely to be due to udev than anyting else.
the last updates did not solved the problem,
seems to be ok now with todays rawhide-updates 20040827
$ rpm -q kernel udev initscripts mkinitrd
initscripts-7.70 now loads modules on bootup; that's where the fix is
