Description Koenraad Heijlen 2004-11-24 18:29:46 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.7.3)
Gecko/20041020 Epiphany/1.4.4

Description of problem:
When booting the haldaemon starts and a few seconds later the machine
freezes. This behaviour has been present since the FC3 release
(x86_64). I have not seen this in any of the i386 FC3-testX releases.
(I've tracked rawhide since test2).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
hal-0.4.0-10, hal-0.4.1.snapshot20041116-1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot the machine, starting hal is 'ok'
2. wait one second - a few seconds

Actual Results:  The machine is totally unresponsive. The keyboard
leds don't work, no network connectivity (no ping reply, no daemons work).

Expected Results:  Anything but a frozen machine.

Additional info:

I've tried it with all the different kernels since the release of FC3
up till 2.6.9-1.681_FC3. I tried booting with 'acpi=off' as boot
parameter : no change.  I've also tried the hal package pointed to in
bug 139819 : no change.

The last message in /var/log/messages with hal version 0.4.0-10 is:
Nov 24 18:21:08 mysterx haldaemon: haldaemon startup succeeded
Nov 24 18:21:10 mysterx fstab-sync[3370]: removed all generated mount

And with the 0.4.1-snapshot release:

The verbose output generated while starting 'hald' made with this script:

hald --daemon=no --verbose=yes > hald_verbose 2>&1 &
tail hald_verbose &
while (true) ;	do
	sync &

(since it freezes the machine a few syncs to make sure I get as much as

Please see if hal-0.4.5 fixes the bug; it's available in FC3 updates
as well as FC3 development.
Comment 4 Koenraad Heijlen 2005-01-15 18:44:31 EST
Tested: hal-0.4.5-1.FC3
with kernel: kernel-2.6.10-1.737_FC3 & kernel-2.6.9-1.724_FC3

No system freeze anymore, the CDROM and DVD Writer are both
recognized, filesystem sizes appear next to partitions. Works as
expected afaict.

Bug fixed, thanks for the follow up!
