my computer hangs when trying to initiate /etc/init.d/hotplug. I emerged to the latest one (hotplug-20030805-r2.ebuild).
I have absolutely no idea what is going on, but I have a feeling that there is indeed an error in the script as I have seen this before with dhcpcd.
Its prob when some or other module is loaded via hotplug. What kernel?
Anything interesting in the logs?
Yes, this happened to me when I migrated to 2.6 and inadvertently left a
postinstall modprobe foo
in my aliases file. Since the module was already loaded by hotplug, it
hung trying to load it again (why it just doesn't error out with
FATAL: Module foo already in kernel.
I have no idea). Check your aliases file, your local.start, or anywhere
you may have had an extra "modprobe" in your startup scripts.
need more info to help out here...
Closing due to lack of info.
