Description Joseph Sacco 2006-11-17 11:55:11 EST
udev-103-2 hangs the boot sequence if media is in a ZIP250 drive. When this
occurs the zipdrive spins, and spins and spins with read light on. Ejecting the
media allows udev start up to complete after which the boot sequence finishes.

Inserting the media into the drive after the system is up does not cause the ZIP
drive to be recognized as /dev/hdd4 has not yet been created.  Mounting the
drive as root

            mount /dev/hdd

works and causes /dev/hdd4 to be created.  Once the permissions for /dev/hdd4
are changed to the desktop owner, inserting and ejecting the media works as

As a side note... after a recent system update in the past 7-10 days, kudzu no
longer runs; it segfaults.
