Description of problem:
kudzu crashes with the following message:
"/etc/rc5.d/S05kudzu: line 97 /usr/sbin/kudzu $KUDZU_ARG -t 30"
This message is shown during boot process and command line input.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Reboot the computer or
2. input the command /usr/sbin/kudzu as root at command line
Actual Results: error message (description) and mouse failes (at command line)
Expected Results: service runs without errors
redhat-config-network, hwbrowser and isdn4k-utils doesn't work
Mainboard MSI K7T266Pro, AMD Athlon 1400MHz, 512MB RAM, ATI Radeon 9600Pro, USB PC-to-PC Controller Genelink, LG GCC-4120B CD-RW/DVD-ROM
I'm guessing it doesn't segfault if you remove the USB PC<->PC cable?
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.
I found a bugzilla entry #106332 with the same content in FC1-test1.
Norm Brake (firstname.lastname@example.org) 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.
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 Tthis problem is obsolete.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.
After deactivation of UBS-controller in the BIOS kudzu works fine but
any USB-devices doesn't work.
I hope there are no USB-device at your PC ...
This is my problem. If I turn off the USB option in my BIOS I can't
use my USB mouse
I have "downgraded" my kudzu version to kudzu-0.99.99-1 (present in
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
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'
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.
Please try the kudzu-184.108.40.206-1 packages at:
These may resolve some of your issues.
I installed this package: Success!
During boot process kudzu founds the contoller and the USB-devices.
Cool. Closing as fixed in rawhide, update will be released for FC1 in
the near future.
