Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 168009
Bootup stops when initializing audio
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:22:02 EST
Description of problem: When Fedora Core 4 is loading, it starts Udev, the
first task is "Initializing Hardware." This passes "storage", "network", and
stops on "audio". "Audio" is displayed on the screen, but the "done" never
appears. I have waited hours for it, and it never passes this point. The
system is locked up. I cannot type or do anything. I have to press the restart
button. This happens 9 out of 10 boots. Sometimes it boots fine, with no
problems. I have onboard Via audio, as well as a Creative Audigy 2 Value card.
I removed the Creative card, and it didn't fix it. I disabled the onboard with
the Creatvie card removed, and it didn't fix it. I put in the Creative card
with the onboard disabled, and that didn't fix it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
9 out of 10 times, only on my machine (so far)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Fedora
I expect Fedora to boot up correctly.

This problem also occured on my machine when I was running FC3
