Description Marius Andreiana 2003-02-02 18:26:51 UTC
I have a CD-ROM and CD-RW on hda,hdb and an IDE hard drive on hde ( asus a7v
motherboard ). Sometimes I also plugin another IDE drive on hdf.

After upgrading to kudzu 0.99.91 the system will hang after 
Finding module depencies [OK]
is displayed ( next would have been checking filesystems ).

Booting from phoebe2 CD and selecting rescue will also hang the system after
hda: DMA disabled
hdb: DMA disabled

But everything works when I put the 2nd ide drive on hdf. When I installed
phoebe2 I didn't have this plugged in.  I'll attach /etc/fstab if it matters,
there's also a message with
Updating /etc/fstab... FAILED.

dmesg output

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2003-02-04 02:45:24 UTC
updfstab failing is fixed in .92.

Hanging after 'finding module dependencies' in rc.sysinit sounds like possibly a
kernel issue. If you enable sysrq, what does sysrq-t or sysrq-p show?

Comment 4 Miloš Komarčević 2003-02-04 18:36:24 UTC
I see fstab update failing on my machine 
even with kudzu-0.99.92-1 

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2003-02-04 20:10:09 UTC
What is the output of 'strace updfstab --skipprobe'?

Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2003-02-07 17:51:52 UTC
Hm, that looks *exactly* like the segfault fixed in .92, and I can't reproduce
it here.

Comment 8 Miloš Komarčević 2003-02-07 21:49:10 UTC
I see this on two machines out of three I run phoebe on.
The two have had a USB zip drive attached/removed if
that's of any help.

Comment 9 Bill Nottingham 2003-02-07 21:56:07 UTC
The crash or the hang?

Comment 10 Miloš Komarčević 2003-02-08 02:29:23 UTC
The updfstab segfault.
Should this be a separate bug for kudzu maybe?

Comment 11 Marius Andreiana 2003-02-10 13:54:35 UTC
after upgrading to kudzu .92, the fstab works for me ( also booting with only
the first hdd ).

I'm closing this, Milos please open another on kudzu if you still have problems
( mention this bug # as reference )
