Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2004-11-01 04:10:07 EST
change udev_log="yes" to udev_log="no" in /etc/udev/udev.conf
Comment 3 David Sanders 2004-11-01 16:57:14 EST
That didn't work. But, rpm -i --force udev-032-8.i386.rpm did.
Comment 4 Philippe Rigault 2004-11-03 18:56:01 EST
I had the same problem with installing FC3-rc2 on a Dell Inspiron 7000, as described in http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-test-list/2004-October/msg02695.html. This happens with a plain install (not Virtual PC) and the default Fedora kernel (2.6.9-1.643) Changing udev_log="yes" to udev_log="no" in /etc/udev/udev.conf solved it for me.
Comment 5 David Sanders 2004-11-03 19:28:59 EST
Philippe, Changing udev_log didn't fix it here.
Comment 6 Harald Hoyer 2004-11-04 09:24:35 EST
David, did ctrl-C work? Could you please try: http://people.redhat.com/harald/udev-039-10.FC3.1.i386.rpm
Comment 7 David Sanders 2004-11-04 12:41:37 EST
Harald, Yes ctrl-c will work. I installed the new udev rpm listed above in Comment #6. It worked, thanks. Any chance of getting that into FC3-final ?

Not to burst any bubbles, but udev still hangs startup here, it takes about 40 seconds, then it goes to the Initializing sequence, which is very slow as well. Might be caused by having switched off USB in BIOS entirely? Also noticed weird udev delay after adding extra RAM. why not compile a version with at least some echo-ing of the errors? (and release it for yum, there are many users with this problem)
