Description Rene Wagner 2008-07-21 17:51:51 EDT
Description of problem:

To work around Bug #391801 I would like to be able to blacklist yenta_socket. 
Fedora unfortunately links this statically into the kernel.

I understand that in my case this would just be a workaround, but for anyone not 
actually needing the cardbus bridge it would still be desirable to disable it in 
order to save power (~10 wakeups per second according to powertop).
Comment 1 Dave Jones 2008-07-21 18:22:49 EDT
theres no real reason why it needs to be built-in.  changed in CVS.
Comment 2 Peter F. Patel-Schneider 2008-07-24 13:44:24 EDT
Is this change in current F9?  If not, when would it hit F9, if at all?

If so, how do I blacklist yenta_socket?
Comment 3 Chuck Ebbert 2008-07-24 23:43:49 EDT
It went in and will be in the next update. ( was
released today.)

Comment 7 Rene Wagner 2008-08-13 16:33:01 EDT
Thanks to everyone involved for making this happen. The new kernel appears to be working fine for me.

Peter, you can blacklist yenta_socket as follows:

# echo 'blacklist yenta_socket' >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-yenta

See 'man modprobe.conf' for details.
