View Full Version : Forced noudev

10-11-2006, 11:54 PM
I've been having trouble with one of my PC's, getting knoppix to load. If I let it load without 'knoppix noudev' it starts autoconfiguring hardware, and never finishes. When I load with 'knoppix noudev' I cannot load the console once knoppix starts. Is there a workaround when using 'noudev' to get the console working? Is there some hardware that is failing to be autoconfigured that is causing udev to hang, if so, how can I figure out what is failing?

NOTE: I did see pretty much this exact post from back in Feb. with no reply.

In another post I did see using
strace hwsetup -a -s after using 'knoppix nohwsetup 3' to diagnose the hanging item. Is that appropriate in my situation? (no access to affected computer at the moment)

If you had that autoconfig long green bar which never finishes, that is probably because you have some device which Knoppix is trying to configure but the provided module is buggy. The typical suspects are USB devices. Try disconnecting some of your USB devices one at a time and boot to see which it is.
