    Unhappy Loopback fails to load on kernel boot

    What needs to be done to repair a broken loopback process?

    I made a custom kernel as 2.6.13-1.1600_FC5 (done this since August).

    I rebooted, and now can’t get past this:

    “Bringing up loopback” message.

    I can rmmod loop and again modprobe loop, but lsmod doesn’t show loop?

    I’m able to do Interactive startup and skip the Network initialization and even

    roll the more new kernel 1601.

    I can term the session at any time and cleanly shutdown/reboot.

    Any ideas what I need to do to restore a this non functioning loopback process?

    Thanks in advance,

    Did you comment out the loopback devices when you complied the custom Kernel?

    Negative. All my kernels have loopback. The .config shows it enabled and set.
