The Daemonic Horde is on the run! (how do I get my snd & net to start up upon boot?)

Other Notes:
1. The firewire is deleted from /etc/modules.conf and kudzu is disabled in the services menu. Support for 1394 Firewire is unselected in the kernel as well..
2. My problem **SEEMS** to have started when I turned off kudzu in the services menu. I did it so that it would not find the firewire and try to install it, however, I guess I can put that back if need be since *not* *compiling* *it* *into* *the* *kernel* works just fine too =).

When I start up my computer, my sound and networking don't turn on. The drivers are fine. I just go into the Gnome configuration menus for them and activate the networking device (eth0) or play the sound test and then they turn on. If I don't continue to use them, however, they turn off again.

Does anyone out there have the know-how to tell me how I can get them to turn on and stay on when I turn on the computer?

Plonking a 2.6 kernel into the middle of an unsuspecting Redhat installation sounds a bit like parking your Humvee in the garage without bothering to open the door. Either foolhardy or very cool, depending on your point of view.

Have you seen this page:

It applies to RH 9 but might have some relevant info.

OK, first of all, he was using the test version of 2.6.0 and I'm using 2.6.3 stable.

Second, I had a lot of trouble doing it at first as well, however, it was entirly my own fault. I didn't configure it right. When I had configured it correctly it worked better than anything else I tried.

And by "correctly" I mean that I didn't include the device drivers for some of my hardware and I kept the 1394 firewire support. Linux doesn't like 1394 firewire ATM. So, I disable that, enable all my hardware drivers, uncheck all the experimental and development features, then

make modules_install install

and reboot. That's it. Linux laptop working fine. The place where I got myself into trouble was with disableing Kudzu. I compiled the firewire out of the kernel, enabled it again, and now it works fine. I just thought there was some other side effects to leaving kudzu on (like trying to load the firewire anyway), but there wasn't.

Right. I'd been holding off doing this. I thought I would break so many things it would take me a week to fix. I see /. has just covered the topic:
