Description of problem:
I did a fresh install of FC5T1 on Thursday (Thanksgiving).  I have been updating to rawhide daily since then.  Every kernel since 2.6.14-1.1709 freezes at udev initializing hardware...

I have an adaptec 2930U2 scsi card connected to 2 western digital hard drives.  I have an ide cd-rom burning attached to the system as primary master.  The motherboard is a tyan tiger 100.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  install kernel 1709 and watch the system boot
2.  install any kernel newer than 1709 and watch the system freeze

Expected Results:  the newer kernels should work

This happens to me also on a HP Compaq NC4010 laptop. IDE harddisks with LVM.
1709 is the latest kernel that boots here.
Comment 2 Dave Jones 2005-12-01 04:46:55 EST
this was likely the ehci bug. Can you try the latest from
http://people.redhat.com/davej/kernels/Fedora/devel  please ?

(Rawhide should also have it fixed now, but there are other issues you may hit
in that kernel preventing you from testing).
Comment 3 Kjartan Maraas 2005-12-01 05:18:33 EST
This is fixed with the latest kernel for me at least.
Comment 4 Jason 2005-12-01 09:47:05 EST
Today's rawhide (kernel 1729) fixed it for me.  Thanks everybody.
