Description Mladen Gogala 2005-01-20 14:59:45 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041111 Firefox/1.0

Description of problem:
I installed the new kernel (acquired by up2date) and tried booting in single
user mode. Everything went through, I even got the prompt, but the console was frozen. Curiously enough, crtl-alt-del worked and rebooted the system cleanly

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install
2. Reboot

Actual Results:  Nothing. That is the problem.

Expected Results:  Boot

Comment 1 Mladen Gogala 2005-01-21 00:24:47 EST
With new HAL things suddenly started working. The only important thing that
doesn't work is linux-wlan-ng, which is not a Red Hat product. Plase, close the
bug. Thanks.
