Lenny sometimes hangs during boot up with Splashy
Lenny boots up, with Splashy 0.3.13 as startup splash, from NFS server.
But sometimes, it hangs during bootup.
When it hangs:
.. no response to any keyboard including F2;
.. can response to echo request by ping from other hosts;
.. about 50% of progress bar passed;
.. no remote ssh login since sshd not started.
To look into where it hangs, I hit F2 to toggle on verbose mode to show
boot message at the begin of splashy runs. We fortunately get a screen-shot
when it hangs. The screen message read :
Configuring network interfaces...
Setting up ALSA...
Part of /etc/init.d/rcS.d/ :
List of /etc/init.d/rc2.d/ :
Since when rc2.d/S10sysklogd runs, it will show message Starting system log
daemon, it must be hanging by one of those scripts between S50alsa-utils
No idea where and why it is locked. Any clue?
