Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 178708
kernel oops in stradis_probe
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:24:30 EST
Description of problem:
I have FC5t2 (updated from t1 with yum) and I have problems booting with
kernel-2.6.15-1.1863_FC5. I cannot boot, kernel oopses when starting udev.
Last working kernel was kernel-2.6.15-1.1826.2.9_FC5.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Oopses in every boot with newer kernel than 2.6.15-1.1826.2.9_FC5.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install udev-078-4
2. Install kernel that is newer than 2.6.15-1.1826.2.9_FC5
3. reboot and wait until udev is started
Kernel oopses when udev is loaded, system does not start
Udev starts normally and system starts

output from serial console at boot
I see a freeze at "Starting udev:_" where the VGA cursor stops blinking, but
there is no Oops displayed, not even on serial console (serial console log
attached.) <Alt><SysRq>T (or any other magic command) does nothing.
kernel-2.6.15-1.1826.2.10_FC5 was the last kernel that booted OK. Everything
since then, including the present kernel-2.6.15-1.1872_FC5, freezes at

should be fixed in todays build
Yes, kernel-2.6.15-1.1895_FC5 does start now without oops, but udev does not
start and thus some devices such as my dvb-t card does not work.
When I boot with kernel-2.6.15-1.1826.2.9_FC5, udev starts ok.
Udev version is udev-078-8.
Any way to find out what udev is doing during the startup and why it's not

if udev is doing something incorrectly, please file a separate udev bug.
seems to be fixed with 2.6.15-1.1907, but driver looks like in comment 7.
dvb-t works: catured mpegs with dvbtools !
dvb-t module is loaded, but it can't be seen, when computer starts, like in FC4 !
