So, this started to happen recently after a reboot due to updates. The screen displays many, meaning more than 12 of:
WARNING: Deprecated config file /etc/modprobe.conf, all config files belong into /etc/modprobe.d/
which is then followed by:
Boot has failed, sleeping forever.
I deleted /etc/modprobe.conf, so that is not the problem. The normal boot process will display the modprobe warning twice and all is well. If the warning is displayed more than twice, the boot will fail and I have to try again.
Any suggestions? I haven't found any useful information yet in the logs.
This problem seems to have been solved by the new kernel update - 188.8.131.52-67.fc12.x86_64
