Description Xander D Harkness 2004-09-02 08:41:28 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.2)

Description of problem:
I upgraded modules-init-tools and rebooted and rc.sysinit when trying
to load modules modprobe fails to load any modules.

The system will boot to runlevel 1 and if i modprobe any modules I get
a failure and the top two lines of  /etc/modprobe.conf.dist printed.

When I removed the file /etc/modprobe.conf.dist the system booted normally

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Provide the file /etc/modprobe.conf.dist and reboot
2. The system will fail when trying modprobe and will either fail to
boot or will boot with about 5 modules loaded

Actual Results:  The system fails to boot and worse with the latest
kernel (kernel-2.6.8-1.538) the screen output is blank

Expected Results:  The system should boot normally into any runlevel
