Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 124632
Kudzu hangs on startup
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:06:35 EST
Description of problem:
When removing the CDROM drive from my laptop, Fedora Core 2 wouldn't
boot because it was stuck in kudzu forever
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
As soon as hardware is changed
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Remove some hardware
2. Boot Fedora
I have a Dell Latitude D600 laptop, I've never experienced that
problem with other distros before. Right now, I have kudzu removed
from rc5.d because otherwise it won't boot.
What happens if you strace it post-boot?
saw nothing in the /var/log/messages. Note that this happens with a
custom kernel (2.6.5-mm6) which otherwise (no kudzu) runs fine.
So, post-boot, it works?
Post-boot is also hangs. When I do a ps, the thing that seems to hang is:
/sbin/modprobe -q -r ohci1394
and the logs have:
ieee1394: Initialized config rom entry `ip1394'
Note that I do NOT have a firewire controller on this laptop.
This is a bug in the kernel firewire layer.
Note that I used exactly the same kernel (2.6.5-mm5) with FC1 with no
Ehhh FC2 has no firewire so how can it be a kernel firewire layer
Dunno if that's relevent, but I think the problem only occurs with a
custom kernel, not the default FC2 kernel. Still annoying though.
