Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2004-11-01 09:10:07 UTC
change udev_log="yes" to udev_log="no" in /etc/udev/udev.conf

Comment 3 David Sanders 2004-11-01 21:57:14 UTC
That didn't work.  But, rpm -i --force udev-032-8.i386.rpm did.

Comment 4 Philippe Rigault 2004-11-03 23:56:01 UTC
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. 

Comment 5 David Sanders 2004-11-04 00:28:59 UTC
Philippe, Changing udev_log didn't fix it here.

Comment 6 Harald Hoyer 2004-11-04 14:24:35 UTC
David, did ctrl-C work?
Could you please try:

Comment 7 David Sanders 2004-11-04 17:41:37 UTC
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 ?

Comment 8 Julius Thyssen 2005-01-13 20:49:29 UTC
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)

Comment 9 Julius Thyssen 2005-01-14 02:52:31 UTC
OK, flashing asus BIOS solved it for me.
My apologies (you may ignore and delete Comment #8 :)
