i think the solution to all of this crap is upgrading to red hat 9 which i believe is coming out soon. there are no options for either plug and play os OR ieee drives in bios, and disabling either kudzu or service network at startup works. however, i am unable to get my modem (conexant) or sound card (sb live!) running sndconfig says there is no such device as /dev/dsp, but the soundcard is detected. i also tried installing the modem but there is no such device as /dev/modem . i think my signature is the rest of the problem

I am running RH9 on a VMware machine and i cant get the eth0 up and running, I disabled Kudzu and I still can't have network running, of course it is within VMware and still testing for the problem, not yet tryed on a real machine... i'm afraid of what will happen there

Howzit Folks?

I've just installed Redhat Linux version 8 on my Sony VAIO PCG-GRX550 and had very similar problems to what has been posted on this thread.

Unfortunately my bios (phoenix) doesn't have an option for Plug n Pray OS so I couldn't try that option.

I took the following actions and it seems to be working for me:

1. Logon interactively and specify N for kudzu before continuing normally.

2. Go into Server Settings/Services/Service Configuration (Gnome)
- Scroll down to kudzu and uncheck and save configuration

3. Reboot and login normally

4. Use up2date to download and install Linux kernel version 2.4.20-20.8 (updated from 2.4.18-14)

5. Go into Server Settings/Services/Service Configuration
- Scroll down to kudzu and check and save configuration

6. Reboot and login normally

Seems to be working fine so far, your mileage may vary.


PS I haven't got to the bottom of the pci=biosirq issue yet.

Re: Re: what kudzu does...

I have a Dell Inspiron laptop with a firewire port and have no problems at all running RH7.3, I just installed 8.0 a few days ago and so far have not found any errors regarding this, however, I have not connected 8.0 to the network yet either. I would venture to guess that if it is a problem with the firewire port, it is specific to certain brands or implementations.

In terms of bugs with 8.0, this is to be expected. A good rule of thumb is don't waste time or money on _even_ (*.0, *.2, etc...) revisions of software as they are usually the first releases of new features, always wait for an _odd_ release (*.1, *.3). Just my .02 USD

Usualy the versioning goes like this X.Y.Z

X = major version number like 2 in kernel 2.4.21
Y = minor version number - represents two things:
if is odd then is an _ustable_ version
if is even then is a _stable_ version

Kudzu is a tool for autodetecting hardware changes on a computer.
According to the result of the scaning the modules.conf file is rewritten, then is used to load the modules (drivers - for the former windows users) needed for the boot-up process.
