Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 187798
FC5 hangs on boot while starting udev on Acer Aspire 1692
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:29 EST
Description of problem:
I've installed FC5 to my Acer Aspire 1692 WLMi laptop but FC5 hangs completely
during boot when "Starting udev" is displayed." I boot into rescue mode and ran
sh -x /sbin/start_udev and last line on screen was when the script was looping
(loop counter was at 167) and was testing for udev/queue.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
udev from FC5.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC5 to a Acer Aspire 1692 laptop
3. See how system hangs
System hangs on boot.
System start ups normally.
If you need more info just let me know and I'll provide it.
Actually, this might be relevant: I had to install FC5 in text mode because when
tried installing in graphical mode, X did not start but screen remained
completely blank after the "Starting X server" and I had to hit Ctrl+Alt+BS to
reboot to system.
have you looked at bug #186164 ??
Sorry, missed that, this is clearly a duplicate. Please close this one.
FWIW, the pcmciautils-012-0.FC5.1.i386.rpm package solved my problem with Acer
