Description of problem:
# Everything else (duck and cover)
for module in $other ; do
modprobe $module >/dev/null 2>&1
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum update (gets new initscripts)
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
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.
