Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 106752
RHL 9.0 Boot Fails/Hangs on Checking for new Hardware
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Description of problem:
Following successful instalation of RHL 9.0, the system failed to boot. 1st on
the firewire - resolved with the nofirewire entry on booting, now it is
hanging on "Checking for New Hardware" ... N.B. I used RHL 7.3 successfully on
the same system before selecting a fresh new RHL 9.0 installation.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
always the same .. even when I remove all usb and pcmcia connected hardware.
Steps to Reproduce:
This is because kudzu also looks at firewire, and the kernel is hanging there.
