Description Jean-Marc Valin 2004-05-28 01:49:59 UTC
Description of problem:
When removing the CDROM drive from my laptop, Fedora Core 2 wouldn't
boot because it was stuck in kudzu forever

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
As soon as hardware is changed

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Remove some hardware
2. Boot Fedora
3. Hang
Actual results:

Expected results:
No Hang

Additional info:
I have a Dell Latitude D600 laptop, I've never experienced that
problem with other distros before. Right now, I have kudzu removed
from rc5.d because otherwise it won't boot.

What happens if you strace it post-boot?

Comment 2 Jean-Marc Valin 2004-05-28 17:12:22 UTC
saw nothing in the /var/log/messages. Note that this happens with a
custom kernel (2.6.5-mm6) which otherwise (no kudzu) runs fine.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2004-05-28 17:58:23 UTC
So, post-boot, it works?

Comment 4 Jean-Marc Valin 2004-05-28 19:58:11 UTC
Post-boot is also hangs. When I do a ps, the thing that seems to hang is:
/sbin/modprobe -q -r ohci1394
and the logs have:
ieee1394: Initialized config rom entry `ip1394'

Note that I do NOT have a firewire controller on this laptop.

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2004-05-28 21:16:06 UTC
This is a bug in the kernel firewire layer.

Comment 6 Jean-Marc Valin 2004-05-28 21:32:53 UTC
Note that I used exactly the same kernel (2.6.5-mm5) with FC1 with no
such problem.

Comment 7 Arjan van de Ven 2004-05-29 08:13:57 UTC
Ehhh FC2 has no firewire so how can it be a kernel firewire layer
problem ?

Comment 8 Jean-Marc Valin 2004-05-29 08:29:31 UTC
Dunno if that's relevent, but I think the problem only occurs with a
custom kernel, not the default FC2 kernel. Still annoying though.
