Description Stefan Assmann 2010-05-31 10:01:46 UTC
Description of problem:
After updating to todays RHEL6 tree my Lenovo T500 hard hangs during boot.
The problem appears shortly after entering the LUKS password.
The only lines that show up at boot are:
Key slot 0 unlocked.
   Welcome to Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation
   Press 'I' to enter interactive startup.
Starting udev: 
! System hangs here for about 1 minute, after that the following messages appear. !
udevd[625]: worker [640] unexpectedly returned with status 0x0100
udevd[625]: worker [640] failed while handling '/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1b.0'

Not sure this is really udev's fault...

How reproducible:

Comment 2 Stefan Assmann 2010-05-31 10:27:42 UTC
added udevdebug=1 to the kernel commandline.
After that udev generates tons of debug statements and hasn't finished even after 20 minutes. This doesn't seem to help.

Comment 3 Phil Knirsch 2010-05-31 11:05:18 UTC
See bug #597232. This is a problem of the new module-init-tools. Reverting to an older version fixes it.

Closing as dup.

Thanks & regards, Phil
