I had the same exact problem with 5.1-RELEASE _and_ 5.2-BETA. However,
a patch just came out for 5.2-BETA that fixes it for me. You have three
1.) Wait for 5.2-RC's ISO images to become available on the FTP site.
2.) Download the 5.2-BETA mini ISO image, install 5.2-BETA, then install
the patch found at the link below, recompile your kernel, and reboot:
3.) CVSUP your sources to -CURRENT, recompile your kernel, and reboot.
Hope that helps!
