Description of problem:
If I reboot my HP/Compaq Nx9010 after having installed fedora core 1
the machine freezes at hardwareprobe (kudzu)! This problem maybe based
of kudzu because there aren't any problem if it is deaktivated!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Fedora Core on a HP/Compaq Nx9010
Do you have firewire? Does it freeze if you run it post-boot?
Yes I have firewire and it freezes at the bootsequenz!
If I turned firewire in grub.conf with nofirewire off and deaktive
kudzu the machine works without any mistake!
Sounds like an issue with the firewire drivers.
Try reenabling kudzu and firewire, add acpi=on to the boot parameters
list in /etc/grub.conf
I think this has to do with the way the PCI bus gets set up.
Same problem with HP pavilion ze5300 (ze5385us) is cured by adding
acpi=on. Firewire seems to be setup fine.
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
