Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 238536
(sometimes) power down on starting udev
Last modified: 2008-01-08 19:17:51 EST
Description of problem:
Sometimes at boot my laptop powers down when starting udev. This happens around
50% of the time when booting. This problem already started to appear at the
first updated kernel after FC6. It's still there in FC7.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
50% of the time.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot laptop
2. Wait for udev to start
Powers down, 50% of the time
Created attachment 153854 [details]
dmesg from succesful boot
Are there any messages on the screen or in the logs when the system
No, no messages at all on the screen. And I guess nothing written to logfile,
because it's still in initrd phase? And if not, syslogd/klogd is not started at
that moment. It's just before rhgb would show...
Is there a way to debug this? I tried booting with acpi=off apic=no but it
doesn't help. Maybe with a serial console? Or enabling udev debug info? Maybe
it's more obvious when one would look at the changes between the FC6 release
kernel and the first FC6 errata kernel?
Somehow, this seems to be fixed after the last few kernel updates. I didn't
really notice anything that could have fixed it, but whatever... If I encounter
it again, I'll report back here.
I am closing
