seems to be related to bug 163057
Comment 2 Dave Jones 2005-07-15 17:48:59 EDT
[This comment has been added as a mass update for all FC4 kernel bugs.
 If you have migrated this bug from an FC3 bug today, ignore this comment.]

Please retest your problem with todays 2.6.12-1.1398_FC4 update.

If your problem involved being unable to boot, or some hardware not being
detected correctly, please make sure your /etc/modprobe.conf is correct *BEFORE*
installing any kernel updates.
If in doubt, you can recreate this file using..

mv /etc/sysconfig/hwconf /etc/sysconfig/hwconf.bak
mv /etc/modprobe.conf /etc/modprobe.conf.bak

Thank you.

This problem persists with this new release as the bug 163057 is solved
Comment 4 Dave Jones 2005-08-26 04:47:29 EDT
sounds unrelated.  I suggest reporting this bug to the maintainer of the
out-of-tree module you're using.
