Description Jeremy Katz 2007-08-21 14:53:16 EDT
Since we're not using kudzu for hardware config anymore really and are just
using it for anaconda's hardware probing, does it make sense to make the next
step and kill off the kudzu initscript?  Is there anything other than the X
reconfig on video adapter change that it's still kicking off?

network devices.
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2007-08-29 13:58:55 EDT
In the Magical Future, we're supposed to be having NetworkManager landing for
all, which would help that.  But then again, there's no package and we're after
the freeze now.

I thought of another thing that's handled -- the serial console inittab setup.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2007-08-29 14:07:43 EDT
One of these days I'm going to write a udev helper that sets up
inittab/securetty entries.
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2007-08-29 14:11:49 EDT
FWIW, the main bit for networks is setting HWADDR somewhere to get naming sane.
udev has some bits we can use for this instead, but they're sort of gross (rules
written to /dev/.udev that get copied to /etc once it's r/w).
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2008-03-10 23:47:53 EDT
Fixed in kudzu-1.2.83-3.
