Description of problem:
A simple mistake in modules.conf causes system start hanging up.
You will get an error message about a syntax error in this file in an endless loop.
This line causes the hang up:
post_install emu10k1 /usr/local/...
....^----- '_' should be '-'.
But the script (?) should check this and shouldn't end up in an endless loop!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.replace '-' in post-install with '_'
Expected Results: Only one error message, but no endless loop!
Sorry about the lack of response on this. At this point, this isn't
going to be fixed unless it still reoccurs on current distributions.
