Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 59531
Start Up freezes
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:25:26 EDT
Description of Problem: After the install, the start up freezes on "checking
for new hardware". This is caused because it can not recognize the ethernet
card. Tried to re-install the ifconfig package but that did not work even
after intall. Won't even loop back when trying to send info.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Ethernet card-
How Reproducible: Tyan System board with a 750mhz AMD processor. Netgear
FA311 ethernet card. System running Grub. C: drive running Windows XP(works
fine) and D: running Red Hat 7.2. (does not even start up but will if you
don't allow it to look for the ethernet card). Cable modem is also running.
Steps to Reproduce:
3.Stalls on 'Checking for new hardware'
Actual Results:check above
Expected Results: To get the ethernet card loaded properly because this is a
very popular ethernet card and to get this machine online.
Additional Information: Please email me asap with a fix to this.
This has nothing to do with the internet-config package, reassigning to kudzu (which is
what is running when it says "Checking for new hardware").
What happens if you disable the kudzu service, but run 'kudzu -p' after booting?
