Screenshot of FC3-rc2 hanging on startudev
change udev_log="yes" to udev_log="no" in /etc/udev/udev.conf
That didn't work. But, rpm -i --force udev-032-8.i386.rpm did.
I had the same problem with installing FC3-rc2 on a Dell Inspiron
7000, as described in
This happens with a plain install (not Virtual PC) and the default
Fedora kernel (2.6.9-1.643)
Changing udev_log="yes" to udev_log="no" in /etc/udev/udev.conf
solved it for me.
Philippe, Changing udev_log didn't fix it here.
David, did ctrl-C work?
Could you please try:
Harald, Yes ctrl-c will work.
I installed the new udev rpm listed above in Comment #6. It worked,
Any chance of getting that into FC3-final ?
Not to burst any bubbles, but udev still hangs startup here,
it takes about 40 seconds, then it goes to the
Initializing sequence, which is very slow as well.
Might be caused by having switched off USB in BIOS entirely?
Also noticed weird udev delay after adding extra RAM.
why not compile a version with at least some echo-ing of the errors?
(and release it for yum, there are many users with this problem)
OK, flashing asus BIOS solved it for me.
My apologies (you may ignore and delete Comment #8 :)
