Thread: Diagnostic on Hardwaredetection available?

    Diagnostic on Hardwaredetection available?


    I use Knoppix on my Laptop and I am very pleased with it. But recently a co-worker wanted to run it on a similar Laptop and it hangs in the hardware detection. Is there a way to tell where it hangs? Booting in (almost) no hardware detection also hangs, as well as the expert mode. We also tried to run the Red Hat 9 Install on his PC, buut it also hangs at loading the ohci1394 driver. Is there a way to tell that Knoppix has the same problem? If the ohci1394 really is the problem, is there a way to prevent its loading?
