Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 189640
System becomes unresponsive when starting udev
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:31 EST
Description of problem:
Clean install of FC5 (via DVD, but CD install does the same), on the very
first boot after the install process, the system stops at
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The version of udev found on the install media.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install FC5
2. reboot when asked
3. system hangs
For the system to boot
This is a new bug report, based on Harald's request for a seperate bug report.
All suggested work arounds _do not_ work in this case.
disabling selinux at boot, doesn't work
disabling acpi at boot doesn't work
disabling pci at boot, doesn't work
booting into single, doesn't work
I uninstalled pcmciautils, no change
I updated the kernel, no change
I have found that by installing the udev package from FC4, I can get a
bootable system. I don't have any working sound if I do this.
I have already attached a sysreport to the before mentioned bug, so I wont
reattach it here unless asked.
It would be really good if we can find a solution.
I disabled all onboard devices and removed all PCI cards.
Adding them back one by one etc etc etc
Turns out that my Sound Blaster Live card and my onboard SIS audio do not want
to play nicely in FC5.
I have removed my Sound Blaster card and all is well.
Hrmm.. Noticed that this was still open, its nott a bug, so I will close it :)
