Problems installing Red Hat 7.2 ( Enigma ) - Modprobe issue?
Having problems installing Red Hat Linux 7.2, or more precisely, after the installation when rebooting.
During non-interactive startup, I get a kernel panic pointing to a problem caused by modprobe ( excuse my lack of knowledge, but I believe that modprobe loads kernel modules for some hardware? )
I renamed modprobe in /sbin and can boot fine. However, I suspect that my PCMCIA cards ( Intel EtherExpress Pro 100 Cardbus & Adaptec 1480A SCSI adapter ) relies on modprobe to load modules for them. Is this right?
I will log a call with Red Hat to try and sort this out, but wondered what steps I could do to try and diagnose this further? I managed to get it in single user mode ( 'linux single' ) in order to rename modprobe.
The machine is a Toshiba Satellite Pro 4320, 320 MB RAM.
Thanks for any advice,
