Description Kenneth Topp 2000-08-19 17:36:39 EDT
rmmod -as every ten minutes? random stalls?  What is this, debian?

Please comment this out.  it's saves little ram, and is a hassle to the end
user experience.  I'm running pinstripe + latest rpm's.

I want to update the severity, as this isn't that important (work around is just
to comment out the cron job).  I just think that as hardware pops in and out of
the system, the freeze on an rmmod is not worth the 20k of memory gained, by
