Description Michael A. Peters 2004-03-15 20:36:48 UTC
Description of problem:
When using the nvidia proprietary video driver, and booting to run
level 5, if kudzu detects new hardware the boot process will freeze
and not continue, forcing a dirty shutdown.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 2 Test 1 - most current version of Kudzu

How reproducible:
Happens every time for me.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install nVidia Video Driver
2. Change hardware or otherwise trigger kudzu to activate during boot
3. Watch it happen
Actual results:
System shows new hardware selection, but doesn't let you choose any
options or otherwise respond. Stays there, stuck

Expected results:
User should be able to use kudzu

Additional info:

I suspect this is a problem with the graphical boot process and
NVidia's driver. Booting to run level 3 has no issue, booting to 5
with a stock kernel (thus not graphical boot) also has no issue. Only
happens when booting to run level 5 with the Fedora kernel (thus
graphical boot) when using nvidia's driver opposed to the generic nv
video driver.

A simple work-around solution would be to not use graphical boot
process with tainted kernels (kernels with closed source drivers loaded).
