Description Scott Dunbar 2002-10-07 12:37:08 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
When booting 8.0 after an upgrade from 7.3 (that was up2date as of 10/4/2002),
the machine will hang at "Bringing up loopback interface" if kudzu is enabled.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have kudzu enabled
2. boot

Actual Results:  Boot hung when attempting to bring up loopback interface.

Expected Results:  Should boot

Additional info:

This is a Toshiba 5005-S504, 512MB RAM.  This is a "legacy free" machine meaning
it doesn't really have a BIOS.  Disabling kudzu during the boot sequence
(/sbin/chkconfig --level 35 kudzu off) allows the machine to boot normally.

Is there firewire in this computer?
Comment 2 Scott Dunbar 2003-01-01 13:43:14 EST
Yes, there is an IEEE 1394 interface in the machine.  It is not in use, but it
does exist.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2003-01-01 21:02:39 EST
This appears to be a kernel issue; on some motherboards/machines the loading of
the firewire modules (which kudzu does, to see if there are any disks attached)
appears to greatly destabilize the system.
Comment 4 Aaron 2003-01-24 18:57:13 EST
Well, this is basically just a "me too" comment, identical hardware.  It 
appears from poking around on the net (search on the model number + linux) that 
it is an acpi issue.  Hopefully we'll see some patches for this.
Comment 5 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 11:40:02 EDT
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
