Description David Lorimer 2005-09-10 13:31:01 EDT
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):

How reproducible:
9 out of 10 times, only on my machine (so far)

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Start Fedora
2.  Wait
Actual results:

Expected results:
I expect Fedora to boot up correctly.

Additional info:
AMD Athlon 64, 3500, 939 pin
1 gig Corsair, dual channel
Triple booting with XP pro, sp2; XPx64 - stable release; and Fedora core 4, 64 bit.
Abit Av8 motherboard, K8T800 Pro Via Chipset
Nvidia GEforce FX 5700LE video card
Creative Audigy 2 Value soundcard
Linux is loaded on a Serial ATA harddrive.

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

Mass update to all FC4 bugs:

An update has been released (2.6.13-1.1526_FC4) which rebases to a new upstream
kernel ( As there were ~3500 changes upstream between this and the
previous kernel, it's possible your bug has been fixed already.

Please retest with this update, and update this bug if necessary.

This is a mass-update to all currently open kernel bugs.

A new kernel update has been released (Version: 2.6.15-1.1830_FC4)
based upon a new upstream kernel release.

Please retest against this new kernel, as a large number of patches
go into each upstream release, possibly including changes that
may address this problem.
