Description Eugene Kanter 2003-12-30 14:16:32 UTC
Description of problem:

option "noprobe" has no desired effect.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. issue linux noprobe on boot disk boot prompt.
2. manually specify hardware.

Actual results:

3. observe anaconda executing kudzu (libkudzu) to detect hardware.

Expected results:

3. anaconda does not execute kudzu and asks user enter all required
data manually.

Additional info:

This is required when kudzu hangs. See bug #112720

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2004-01-03 20:27:04 UTC
It's pretty much impossible to do an install and completely kill all
kudzu probing... installing kudzu ends up running a kudzu probe.  So
instead of hacking to make things even more painful in the code, I'd
rather fix them so that the lockups don't occur.

Comment 2 Eugene Kanter 2004-01-06 02:56:24 UTC
I believe that there should be a way to bring anaconda up without any
kind of hardware detection. Then user can go ahead and remove kudzu
from the packages list.
