Description Greg Retkowski 2000-01-18 17:44:12 EST
The kudzu process will hang the boot procedure when the machine is
configured to use a serial console and the rc?.d/S??kudzu init script is
run. Output is a series of spaces/tabs every few seconds and any attempt to
exit/abort (Ctrl-C, Ctrl-X, etc) does not work. The machine does not
continue to boot but instead stays in this state untill it is power cycled.

Workaround is to remove /etc/rc.d/rc?.d/S*kudzu on systems booting with a
serial console.

A more perminent suggestion would be to check for a serial console and
abort in the init script; check for serial console and abort in kudzu; or
check for serial console and if present skip serial tests and proceed in a
text based mode.

Duh. I'm surprised none of the sparc-types beat me over
the head about this before.

Fixed in CVS; will be fixed in the kudzu-0.24 release.
