Re: [suse-security] Kernel update hangs system!


I had the same problem with my server! It took me nearly 3 hours to figure out 
what was wrong and to roll back to the standard kernel from CD. I found out, 
that the kernel hangs as soon as the harddrive is mounted with write support! 
I don't know why.. it makes no sens. I too have an other System where it 
works perfectly. So SuSE Team! Fix this Bug! Its really anoying!!!!! I wont 
install the next kernelpatch until its tested and veryfied! I've better 
things to waste my time on!
