Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 185989
Acer notebook boots to "starting udev", then freezes

Description of problem:
I have made a clean installation of FC5 final on an Acer TravelMate 4600, and
tried to boot it for the first time. The system boots up to "starting udev:",
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC5 on an Acer TravelMate 4600.
System shows "starting udev", then freezes. I have to shut down the system by force.
System boots up.
The system was working fine with FC4.
I've seen this on a friend's ACER Aspire 1650. Booting with acpi=off is the only
known way to get the thing to start, but the resulting interrupt routing is a mess.
