Description Tom 2008-12-31 17:42:08 EST
Created attachment 328024 [details] kernel dump of GPF Description of problem: About one out of every three boots udev takes a very long time to initialize followed by general protection fault, don't know for sure if this is a kernel or udev related issue. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: One of every three boots or so. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Boot machine and cross fingers. 2. 3. Actual results: High likelihood of GPF then lock-up. Expected results: Normal boot. Additional info: I tend to think this is likely related to udevadm as it keeps appearing in the crash dumps.

you might try to boot with "modprobedebug" added to the kernel command line

This issue turned out to be unrelated to the operating system, as I discovered several days ago that I had a flaky dimm, acting up in ways never before seen by me. Ended up the system died as a result, that's how I figured out what was going on. I have since swapped out all ram, re-installed and tested extensively. Problem has not reoccurred, and I am certain it was hardware related. Bug report can be safely closed.
