Description Klaus-Peter Schrage 2005-04-16 13:32:15 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050323 Firefox/1.0.2 Fedora/1.0.2-1.3.1

Description of problem:
Boot hangs during hardware initialization after displaying:
'Initializing hardware... storage network audio'

Trying to get into interactive mode by pressing 'i' doesn't help.

This behaviour is similar to the one described in Bug 145903, but it shows up for the first time now after upgrading to the recent kernel. I've done plenty of kernel upgrades before on this machine after installing fc3 without this problem. This machine's software is up to date. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade to kernel-2.6.11-1.14_FC3
2. Boot
3. Enjoy

Actual Results:  see above

Expected Results:  Boot should continue

Additional info:

A brute workaround was booting from a rescue cd and hatching out the following lines in /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit:

# Everything else (duck and cover)
for module in $other ; do
       load_module $module

... sorry, seems to be sent twice (cf 155109).
Please remove.
