Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 456173
Please consider building yenta_socket as a module
Last modified: 2008-08-13 16:33:01 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).
theres no real reason why it needs to be built-in. changed in CVS.
Is this change in current F9? If not, when would it hit F9, if at all?
If so, how do I blacklist yenta_socket?
It went in 18.104.22.168-98 and will be in the next update. (22.214.171.124-97 was
kernel-126.96.36.199-107.fc9 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 9
kernel-188.8.131.52-108.fc9 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 9
kernel-184.108.40.206-108.fc9 has been pushed to the Fedora 9 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
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.
