Description George Billios 2005-09-16 12:55:02 EDT
Description of problem: With vanilla kernels 2.6.13, 188.8.131.52 and 2.6.14-rc1, booting stops at 'Starting udev'. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): udev-058-1 mkinitrd-4.2.15-1 initscripts-8.11.1-1 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Compile a > 2.6.13 kernel 2. Boot it 3. Actual results: Booting stalls at 'Starting udev' and booting is very very slow up to that point Expected results: Boot normal Additional info: I'm running vanilla kernel 184.108.40.206 but haven't tested any other 2.6.12.x kernel but this probably happens with the latest 2.6.12.x kernels. My computer is an Acer laptop, 3.06GHz HT processor, running SMP kernel. Also note that my boot options for 220.127.116.11 kernel include acpi=noapic but if I run the >2.6.13 kernel with that option, my system hangs just after grub. I have tried all processor config options in the kernel configuration but had no result. Probably some customization made by fedora in udev causes the problem since it hangs at that point.

This bug also exists with newer fc4 kernel kernel-smp-2.6.13-1.1526_FC4 but I have found that this happens only with smp kernel and not unp kernels. I have also opened this bug http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5331 in kernel.org bugzilla. Could any admin change the title to something better, like ACPI and SMP kernels? Thanks

Does the latest udev update fix your issues?

I probably haven't read the previous comment, sorry for that. Unfortunatelly since January I am using FC5 (devel back then) so I can't test it now.

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd. Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and either update the target product or close it ? Thanks.
