Alright, well I will have to try and re-compile a kernel I guess.
Turns out that earlier my firewire dongle was not pushed in all the way.
I fixed that and now if I try to boot with my STB connected to the
system it hard locks up during boot, if I unplug the STB and plug it
back in after my system has booted then it locks up as soon as I plug
in. So..... that sucks, there is a kernel oops on the screen but its not
getting logged to syslog so I don't have anyway to cut and paste it.
Anyway, I'll report back if I can successfully rebuild a fedora kernel.
In the past I haven't had much luck doing that. Its much easier on
slackware or gentoo.
