Description of problem:
after a yum update roughly 4 days ago, my box couldnt boot up anymore. It brings up eth1 but then the ifup of an xDSL interface hangs indefinitely (for hours if left alone). Booting via init=/bin/bash and fixing up the interface to not be brought up during bootup solves the problem - 'ifup Provider' works fine after a full bootup. The problem is fully reproducible otherwise.

i'm now running yesterday's devel packages and the problem didnt go away.

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

If you add -x to the invocation of ifup, where does it hang?

Comment 2 Ingo Molnar 2005-05-05 08:55:54 UTC
things further deteriorated today - now it says 'MAKEDEV: directory already
exists' (or something like that, serial console doesnt work for whatever reason)
and then hangs at the 'enabling hardware' (?) step. With selinux=0 it boots up
just fine, and i dont get the xDSL hang either.

Marking as a duplicate; this appears to be related to a udev bug.
