Description Andre Srinivasan 2005-11-15 18:28:34 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
If I have an unclean shutdown, on boot I noticed that even though I have specified that the ipw2100 driver module get loaded disabled in modprobe.conf, the driver gets loaded and the radio is enabled.  The expected behavior (of the driver getting loaded and the radio staying disabled during boot) occurs if I have a clean shutdown.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure options to disable the radio on ipw2100 in modprobe.conf
2. Kill power to the box
3. Boot the box.  You'll see the driver module get loaded with the radio enabled.

Actual Results:  The driver ignores the options in modprobe.conf

Expected Results:  The option to disable the radio should have been respected.

This only happens on unclean shutdown?
Comment 2 Andre Srinivasan 2005-11-16 12:33:25 EST
This only happens (and happens every time) on startup after an unclean shutdown.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2005-11-16 12:39:40 EST
What's the exact line you have in modprobe.conf?
Comment 4 Andre Srinivasan 2005-11-16 13:15:24 EST
options ipw2100 disable=1

Does this persist in FC5? I was unable to reproduce this.

No, this no longer occurs in FC5.
