Is there a "kudzu.conf" or equivalent file


I want to force kudzu to re-detect everything ie serial modem, usb stuff and nic etc but not use answers I have given before.

What file(s) should I delete/edit to make kudzu run "clean"

Thanks,

mark

ps Fedora Cora 1

I posted this in the "newbie" section because I want to know if it is safe to delete the files or if I have to edit them. I am a newbie

From the man pages
kudzu detects and configures new and/or changed hardware on a system. When started, kudzu detects the current hardware, and checks it against a database stored in /etc/sysconfig/hwconf, if one exists. It then determines if any hardware has been added or removed from the system. If so, it gives the users the opportunity to configure any added hardware, and unconfigure any removed hardware. It then updates the database in /etc/sysconfig/hwconf.
If no previous database exists, kudzu attempts to determine what devices have already been configured, by looking at /etc/modules.conf, /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/, and /etc/X11/XF86Config.
From reading the man pages
1. The "kudzu.conf" file is /etc/sysconfig/hwconf
2. If no database i.e. the hwconf file does not exist kudzu will run clean. Instead of deleting the hwconf file I would rename it to something like hwconf.bak

Now was that difficult?







BTW thanks I hope to hit 3000 by mid year.

My sincerest apologies, michaelk I was/am having a bad day (but I know that is no excuse for my rudeness)

Thank you for the replies, and once again sorry.

I wish to add that michealk is a God amongst men, gentleman and scholar etc etc:

Removing /etc/sysconfig/hwconf and /etc/sysconfig/hwconf~ then rebooting has finally got my usb working again.

I will email him to ask permission to remove my inappropriate posts above, but will not remove them until/if he gives consent as I do not wish his comments to be read out of context.

how to force kudzu in virtual machine

Hello.

I'm running red hat 5.4 in a Virtual machine in Lab Manager in VMWare.

I have a configuration with two VMachines that need to connect to each other by SSH.
From what I was told, each machine needs to have two nics with internal IPs that connect externaly via NAT, automatically configured by Lab Manager. This is due to the middleware that will be installed on top of redhat.

Configurations:

machine A:
eth0: 15.15.15.1
eth1: 16.16.16.1
external IP : lab IP x.x.x.1

machine B
eth0: 15.15.15.2
eth1: 16.16.16.2
external IP : lab IP x.x.x.2

Everything works ok and I can ping both the machines from each other(A<->B) but I can not SHH from one to the other.(SSH from A<->B not possible)
The firewall is disabled and sshd ir running.
From my laptop I can SHH both the machines.

I was told that I need to restart both machines and run Kudzu to change the nics IP configuration to "use dynamic IP configuration".
The problem is that I can not run Kudzu. Everytime I type the command nothing happens.
Added kudzu to the startup services but nothing happens.
Tried to force the start by removing the cards but Lab manager automatically restores the nics and kudzu is never started.
Also tried to start kudzu manually with root account but nothing happens.

Is there a way that I can force Kudzu to start?

Thanks in advance for your help!

BR,
Pedro Röseler
