Description of problem:
Fedora boots very slowly. Hangs when "Starting udev" for approximately 30 seconds. No RPMs had been installed before booting, and this was not the first boot. I've never experienced similar problems with any previous Fedora release.

can you attach /var/log/messages and /var/log/dmesg from the last boot only?
Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2009-11-09 07:39:05 EST
Do you have the floppy enabled in your BIOS and no real floppy installed?
Comment 3 Ignat Semenov 2009-11-09 12:43:13 EST
Yes, the floppy was the reason. Disabling it gave me a boot time of 24 seconds (according to bootchart). So this one can be closed.
P.S How did you guess without dmesg output?)
Comment 4 Harald Hoyer 2009-11-09 12:54:01 EST
similar bug reports and the hanging blkid process, (which seems to try to access the floppy through BIOS routines :)
