Description of problem:
Laptop HP pavilion ze5600 crashes if kudzu is switched on.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): RH9
How reproducible: See above
Steps to Reproduce: See above
Actual results: Crash
Expected results: Have hardware detected properly.
The entire machine crashes?
Yes. I had to switch off both kudzu and firewire to be able to
install RH or the system would hang. PCMCIA makes the system hang
when it tries to shut it down, so I switched it off too. So now what
I have is a system that boots from HD fine, and is able to
communicate to the outside world by means of Lan network and floppy.
But it can't manage the DVD/CDROM driver or use other devices such as
modem and infrared ports.
OK, this sounds like the kernel is having problems with your hardware.
Yeah, sounds likely. Any suggestions on solving this? Should I refer
to someone else?
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
