UDEV - SBLive(emu10k) - Mandriva hangs at UDEV during boot.....still! Grrr.
This problem is still plaguing me. Some wag said that the SBLive (Gold5.1) is not PCI bus friendly.

There's no point loading drivers or modprobing, lspci or grep -a audio or anything else for that matter because the system just locks up right after the 'hit I for interactive startup' and the next line is udev then the skyhook takes over sending you to the long wait department.

Is there anything I can do in /etc/udev/whathaveyou or in /etc/rc.d/rc.somethingorother that'll allow the computer to boot completely with the soundcard in it's slot? Is there a udev fix for this?

I see Yella-one and crisostomo_enrico (users) have a few clues about these things, do you gentlemen have any ideas for me?

Hi, you might find some clue with ctrl+Alt+F12, syslog terminal.

Instead if hitting 'I',

If you have a way to edit files, like /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-mdv

add pc-speaker to the list. This will make sure there is no conflict with the sound modules being loaded in the wrong order.


# disable PC speaker by default
# pcspkr is the standard driver, while snd-pcsp is the ALSA driver
blacklist pcspkr
blacklist snd-pcsp

Hope this helps.

OK. I'll try that too. On my Mandriva system it'll have to go into /etc/modprobe.conf

I have to wait until this video is finished encoding then it's a matter of putting the card back in and rebooting. Thanks for teh Ctl+Alt+F12 trick that's a new one on me.

I'll keep you posted.
