What kind of hardware is on this system?
Comment 2 Glen Foster 2001-03-15 17:36:06 EST
This defect considered MUST-FIX (show-stopper) for Florence Gold.

I bet you it's trying to detect the disks and can't do it
what the controller on that board?

I bet this is the kudzu fallover I see.
Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2001-03-29 17:38:08 EST
I thought you weren't seeing that on a clean tree...
Comment 7 Michael Fulbright 2001-04-06 13:56:57 EDT
Is this fixed or not?
Comment 8 Phil Copeland 2001-04-06 14:57:11 EDT
I've not seen a reoccurance of this behaviour on any of the equipment I have
with the newer versions. So unless anyone objects, I'd close this bug
