Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2003-12-29 22:52:09 UTC
I'm guessing it doesn't segfault if you remove the USB PC<->PC cable?

Comment 2 Sebastian Krieg 2003-12-30 21:56:52 UTC
Removing the USB PC-to-PC Controller was not an good idea: The error 
message was now "434 Segmentation fault" (before: "467") and 
X-Windows starts without Mouse (Wheel PS/2) and Keyboard. 

Comment 3 Sebastian Krieg 2004-01-01 22:31:29 UTC
I found a bugzilla entry #106332 with the same content in FC1-test1. 
Norm Brake (norm@nebcs.com) developed a workaround. But I can't make 
a binary, because there is an "DIET" in the makefile and my system 
doesn't know it. 

Comment 4 Sebastian Krieg 2004-01-05 16:26:38 UTC
there are some news: 
1. I found the dietlibc. Tthis problem is obsolete. 
2. After deactivation of USB-controller in the BIOS, the problem 
doens't exist anymore. The redhat-config-network works fine, I have 
internet access with kisdndock. 
But I havn't any USB-devices (that is no problem, I haven't any 
excerpt from the manual MSI K7T266Pro (MSI-6380): 
"...USB Interface ... controlled by the VT8233 southbridge ..." 
I hope the netxt version of kudzu is been fixed. 

Comment 5 Michele Mazzucco 2004-01-05 22:04:11 UTC
After deactivation of UBS-controller in the BIOS kudzu works fine but
 any USB-devices doesn't work.

Comment 6 Sebastian Krieg 2004-01-06 08:25:12 UTC
I hope there are no USB-device at your PC ... 

Comment 7 Michele Mazzucco 2004-01-06 11:49:07 UTC
This is my problem. If I turn off the USB option in my BIOS I can't
use my USB mouse

Comment 8 Michele Mazzucco 2004-01-06 15:37:41 UTC
I have "downgraded" my kudzu version to kudzu-0.99.99-1 (present in
RH9 CD1):

 rpm -Uv --oldpackage --nodeps kudzu-0.99.99-1.i386.rpm

Now kudzu redhat-config-network, kisdndock and any USB device work
fine, while hwbrowser doesn't work yet.

However now there is a problem with redhat-config-xfree86 (the monitor
configuration GUI):

How to reproduce:
 input the command "redhat-config-xfree86" as root at command line

 Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "/usr/share/redhat-config-xfree86/xconf.py", line 330, in ?
     vc = rhpl.videocard.VideoCardInfo()
   File "/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/rhpl/videocard.py", line
504, in __init__
 AttributeError: pciDevice instance has no attribute 'pcibus'

Comment 9 Sebastian Krieg 2004-01-06 19:15:02 UTC
After disabling USB in BIOS I have not installed the  
redhat-config-xfree86 again, because this kills my boot process. I  
don't need it anyway.  
If you use an binary driver (ATI or NVIDIA), you set the X-Server 
once during installation and you can edit it in the 
BTW: Yum and synaptic are better tools than redhat-config-packages.  
I see, We have developed some workarounds (The Linux community  
works!!!) and I hope, that there are fixed packages in next time.  

Comment 10 Bill Nottingham 2004-02-04 06:36:40 UTC
Please try the kudzu- packages at:

These may resolve some of your issues.

Comment 11 Sebastian Krieg 2004-02-10 20:30:57 UTC
I installed this package: Success! 
During boot process kudzu founds the contoller and the USB-devices. 
Thank you. 

Comment 12 Bill Nottingham 2004-02-10 21:11:39 UTC
Cool. Closing as fixed in rawhide, update will be released for FC1 in
the near future.
