Description Evan Rempel 2005-04-03 20:53:11 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050323 Firefox/1.0.2 Fedora/1.0.2-1.3.1

Description of problem:
even with 
alias ieee1394-controller ohci1394
in the /etc/modprobe.conf file, when running kudzu, the system hangs.

If the module directory /lib/modules/2.6.10-1.770_FC3smp/kernel/drivers/ieee1394 is removed or renamed, then kudzu does not hang the system.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kudzu-1.1.95-1 kernel-smp-2.6.10-1.770_FC3

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot to runlevel 2
2. /etc/init.d/kudzu start

Actual Results:  System hangs.

Expected Results:  New hardware is checked and prompt is returned.

Additional info:

Hardware is Tyan Thunder 2500 motherboard, Nvidia GForce4 Ti 4200.
This motherboard is a Serverworks III HE chipset with LSI SCSI.

Possibly related, cups also locks the system.
The system boots fine and runs X fine if kudzu and cups are not loaded.

The motherboard does not have ieee1394 at all.
running kudzu -s does not help. noacpi does not help.

Comment 1 Dave Jones 2005-07-15 14:47:56 EDT
An update has been released for Fedora Core 3 (kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3) which
may contain a fix for your problem.   Please update to this new kernel, and
report whether or not it fixes your problem.

If you have updated to Fedora Core 4 since this bug was opened, and the problem
still occurs with the latest updates for that release, please change the version
field of this bug to 'fc4'.

Thank you.
Comment 2 Evan Rempel 2005-07-15 20:46:56 EDT
The kernel kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3 panics with the message

insmod: error inserting /lib/raid5.ko: -1 Unknown symbol in module

I don't have a /lib/raid5.ko file. The closest appropriate file is

Comment 3 Dave Jones 2005-07-15 22:14:55 EDT
Do this (in order)

ls -l /boot/initrd-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3.img
mv /etc/modprobe.conf /etc/modprobe.conf.old
rm -f /etc/sysconfig/hwconf
mkinitrd /boot/initrd-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3.img 2.6.12-1.1372_FC3
ls -l /boot/initrd-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3.img

(the output from the two ls's should be different if my theory is correct).
Comment 4 Dave Jones 2005-10-02 21:04:31 EDT
This bug has been automatically closed as part of a mass update.
It had been in NEEDINFO state since July 2005.
If this bug still exists in current errata kernels, please reopen this bug.

There are a large number of inactive bugs in the database, and this is the only
way to purge them.

Thank you.
Comment 5 Evan Rempel 2005-12-18 00:44:00 EST
I was unable to upgrade the kernel as the system became very unstable.
I was completely unable to install Fedora Core 4. I even tried doing and install
using a different hard drive controller, but that didn't work either. Fedora
Core 4 will simply not install on my motherboard.

I have gone back to fedora core 3, and with a masive up2date, I have no problem
with kudzu or cups.

I am still disappointed about Core 4, but the issue with this bug is no longer
Comment 6 Dave Jones 2005-12-19 23:54:33 EST
ok, please file a separate bug about any fc4 issues.
