Description of problem:
Built custom kernel 2.6.13-1.1598_FC5 from source. As have done with all the latest dev kernels over the last three weeks. Somehow my loopback is toast. During Interactive, at "Bringing up loopback" dev goes no further, I can only term the session with ctl-alt-del, which safely shuts down the system.
If I try the Interactive approach, I say N for network, load everything else, can get to a bash prompt, I can load and unload loop using modprobe/rmmod respectively. However doing a ifup lo does nothing. I can ctrl-c back to bash.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Custom kernel build
3. Stops at "Bringing up loopback
Actual Results: Loopback doesn't load. No hanging occurs. Can safely shutdown the system.
Expected Results: Boot to greeter application.
Have been regularly and systematically building custom kernels do to Syskonnects unbelievably poor support in current dev kernel. Have to roll my own, and add in the patch from Syskonnect PCI Xpress Gigabyte Lan support. Marvell that is.
Found resolution in doing a simple ldconfig
