can you try the modprobe trick I suggested in bug 154650 and see where that gets
you ?

Comment 2 Dave Jones 2005-07-15 19:37:19 UTC
An update has been released for Fedora Core 3 (kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3) which
may contain a fix for your problem.   Please update to this new kernel, and
report whether or not it fixes your problem.

If you have updated to Fedora Core 4 since this bug was opened, and the problem
still occurs with the latest updates for that release, please change the version
field of this bug to 'fc4'.

Thank you.

There are a large number of inactive bugs in the database, and this is the only
way to purge them.

Thank you.
