Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 2278
Modprobe hang in rh5.9.12

Well heres the deal, since the installer did not see,
my 4 way Xeon, I had to rebuild the kernel for SMP.
2.2.5-10 was in the make file thus over riding the stock
kernel modules that you install.
I belive that this is a major bug, since I now need to
reboot off of floppy !! with any thing but 2.2.5-10
with a new kernel so the mod deps will fail !!!
and I can get to a root prompt.
IMHO single should be single, aka no mod deps,
the suport staff will get many tickets, of why does my
machine hang on boot, for mod deps !!!
I believe this problem has been fixed (we have a non-hanging 4 way
Xeon in running Red Hat 6.0). Please reopen if I'm wrong.
