Description Hanno Foest 2001-03-24 15:40:10 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)."
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2001-03-24 21:36:55 EST
Sounds like a bug in the SCSI driver.
Comment 2 David Lawrence 2001-03-25 18:32:45 EST
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.
