Description Kimmo Koivisto 2006-01-23 12:44:04 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):    
How reproducible:    
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   
Actual results:    
Kernel oopses when udev is loaded, system does not start   
Expected results:    
Udev starts normally and system starts   
Additional info:

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
"Starting udev:_".

Comment 4 Dave Jones 2006-02-02 16:41:26 EST
should be fixed in todays build
Comment 5 Kimmo Koivisto 2006-02-03 13:14:46 EST
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.
Comment 9 Ronald Warsow 2006-02-04 15:49:48 EST
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 !
