udev times out on boot, network and sound missing
Last modified: 2008-06-27 02:56:05 EDT
Description of problem:
Booting with kernel > kernel-126.96.36.199-137.fc8 I get a long
wait when udev starts and then a timeout, then no network or sound.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-188.8.131.52-64.fc8 (this is the latest I've tried; all
kernel updates I've tried since (but not including)
184.108.40.206-137.fc8 have had (what appears to be) the same
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot with kernel 220.127.116.11-64.fc8
2. wait while udev times out
3. login and observe state of machine
Network manager reports that there is no interface eth0
the volume control applet indicates that there is no sound
no timeout from udev, eth0 and sound should work
Machine is an IBM thinkpad X30 26724XG
eth0 is driven by e100

dmesg output, booted with debug on the command line
Can you try adding "udevdebug" to the boot options?

/var/log/messages extract command line udevdebug
I can, and I get *lots* of logging on the console, but with
debug and udevdebug on the command line, unless I boot
single, the system never (for as long as I've waited) gives
me a shell. Booting single, I get a shell, but dmesg
contains none of the udevdebug messages (even if I set
udev_log="debug" in /etc/udev/udev.conf.
The attachment is with udevdebug (but not debug) on the
kernel command line; this is the best I could get.
Scroll lock during udev start-up shows that nearly half of
the messages are "udev_rules_iter_label: moving forward
looking for label 'libsane_rules_end'" (if I wrote that down
correctly). /etc/udev/rules.d/60-libsane.rules is as
packaged in sane-backends-1.0.18-17.fc8
Ironically, if booted with debug udevdebug, although I don't
get a login shell I do get eth0 started -- it responds to
pings, but there's no useful service running.
This bug seems to have disappeared by Fedora 9
