[PlanetCCRMA] Fedora 7 issue

Thanks, I'll give it a try.

The weird part is that I don't have this
 problem when I use the kernel, even with the ccrma
 repositories enabled and all updates (libraw1394, libavc1394, and a few others)
 applied.  It's only happening with the RT kernel

I'm not sure, but I've had these kind of problems a few times in the
Places to check if the machine is trying to load the "disabled"

/etc/sysconfig/networking/"stuff" (sometimes setups get saved there)

How to tell the kernel not to load a module,
Put this in /etc/modprobe.conf

blacklist (*)
install (*) /sbin/modprobe -r (*)

where (*) = the name of the driver you don't want loaded
(what you're telling the kernel to do is for every time the driver is
 to be loaded(install);
  unload the module instead)

example from an old machine with fc6(lines in modprobe.conf):

# Needed to free up the parallel port for the midi switcher on 2.6.16
blacklist parport
blacklist parport_pc
blacklist lp
install lp /sbin/modprobe -r --verbose lp
install parport_pc /sbin/modprobe -r --verbose parport_pc
install parport /sbin/modprobe -r --verbose parport
# Needed to get the system to ignore the onboard soundcard hardware
 with 2.6.17 kernels.
blacklist snd_via82xx
blacklist snd_via82xx_modem
blacklist gameport
install gameport /sbin/modprobe -r --verbose gameport
install snd_via82xx_modem /sbin/modprobe -r --verbose snd_via82xx_modem
install snd_via82xx /sbin/modprobe -r --verbose snd_via82xx
