does it work if you add "nomcollect" to the kernel command line with
udev-113-3.fc8 ??
Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2007-07-13 06:34:48 EDT
btw, which kind of external drive is this? USB?
Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2007-07-13 06:38:03 EDT
if booting with nomcollect does not work, try to change the line in
/etc/udev/rules.d/05-udev-early.rules from:
ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="pnp", ATTR{id}=="?*", RUN+="modprobe_helper
ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="pnp", RUN+="/bin/sh -c 'while read id; do
/sbin/modprobe pnp:d$$id; done < /sys/$devpath/id'"

and see if that works.

Booting with 'nomcollect' works. Yes, it's a USB drive, but also has a firewire
interface. I have the same issue (booting without nomcollect) if I connect
through the firewire interface.

Issue fixed in udev-113-4.fc8 (without needing to boot with nomcollect). Thanks.
