Serious rc.hotplug issues


Ok recently I was installing the lm-sensors and the related i2c package for the sensors on my motherboard. I rebooted and when it was doing some kind of modprobe it segfaulted and left the system just sitting there not booting any futher. It's loading this info from modprobe.old in /sbin I guess... is there a way to get around this without losing my hotplug support? The system boots fine if I chmod -x /etc/rc.d/rc.hotplug .. Looking for a way to replace the modprobe.old with a blank copy and have the system not know the difference... any ideas???

Ok, booted to the handy dandy OS on a CD CD... aka the second 9.1 CD and mounted my /dev/hda5 filesystem chmod -x rc.hotplug and went in and removed and reinstalled some packages.... reboot and I still get a segmentation fault when it loads what appears to be my bttv0 module for my tvtuner card. bttv runs off of i2c, which is what I had installed before...so I'm guessing thats the problem.

Problem resolved.... the i2c modules for download don't like certain older modules such as the bttv module... once i2c-core is loaded and hotplug tries to load bttv things go down the drain and the system segmentation faults....oops So, I found all the modules it installed, removed them, removed the kernel, modules, source, module init, and kernel headers.... removes /usr/src/linux and the /lib/modules directories with the bad modules and reinstalled those packages. Reboot, and the system is back to normal.
