Comment 1 Nils Philippsen 2008-04-18 10:25:40 EDT
I've dug a bit around and found that there are changes in /sys which make kudzu
not identify the device name are likely to be the culprit. I'm changing the
component to kudzu.

Some details:

Up to Fedora 8 (kernel FWIW), SCSI block devices have symlinks
like /sys/bus/scsi/devices/0:0:0:0/block:sda which get used by
__getSysfsDevice() to identify the device file (e.g. /dev/sda).

Rawhide/F9 kernels (2.6.25-0.234.rc9.git1.fc9.x86_64 over here) don't have these
symlinks, these kernels do have /sys/bus/scsi/devices/0:0:0:0/block/sda which
could be used to identify the name though -- i.e. __getSysfsDevice() won't find
the related device file name without changes in kudzu.

This is why kudzu is deprecated and should not be used any more...
