Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 33097
kudzu-0.98.2-1 hangs at startup
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:01:10 EST
When kudzu starts, it prints the text "Updating /etc/fstab" and then
doesn't proceed. Skipping kudzu at boot time and starting it manually
later, I notice that kudzu seems to enter an endless loop of loading the
sym53c8xx SCSI driver module and resteeing the SCSI subsystem:
"sym53c810a-0: restart (scsi reset)."
Sounds like a bug in the SCSI driver.
I too have noticed this on my personal machine at home. I have a Tekram DC-390F
PCI scsi card with just a scsi CDR hooked to it. When booting it will hang for a
very good while at the "Updating /etc/fstab" message. It will eventually proceed
if given enough time.

I've seen something quite similar with ieee1394.
hopefully fixed in current releases, please reopen if reproducable with
