When you boot in rescue mode, can you edit rc.sysinit so the first line is:
Then, where does it hang?
+fgrep -xq megaraid /etc/hotplug/blacklist
Mass update of -test bugs to update version to fc4.
(Please retest on final release, and report results if you have not already done
When the FC4 was released, I did try to install and close this issue. I have
not been able to get a working install on this system. The system does now boot
after the install, but is still unusable. I still get Segmentation faults when
running yum, rpm and perl. I have entered another issue, but (personally)
believe they may still be related. I have no facts to back up my claim.
So technically this case could be closed.
Reff to new bugzilla case:
ok, we'll track the segfaults in the other bug.
As the hang is fixed, I'll close this one out.
