Description of problem:
when loading dv1394 driver, the loading process fails with

[root@fali jacquot]# /sbin/modprobe dv1394
/lib/modules/2.4.18-18.8.0/kernel/drivers/ieee1394/dv1394.o: init_module: Cannot
allocate memory
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including
invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
      You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.18-18.8.0/kernel/drivers/ieee1394/dv1394.o: insmod

Comment 1 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 15:40:16 UTC
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem
persists.

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
