I have been reporting the kudzu problem for at least 1-2 weeks and
apparently it wasn't an important to someone until now?  Maybe too
many fires had to be put out first :-)

I wonder how many users out there are using nvidia chipsets?
So in effect you are saying... "too bad - you are in the
minority and we will continue on and leave you wither in
the dust..."  Sigh...  personally, I would tell you a thing or
two not very nice words and to... well... I'm going to be a
gentleman and leave it at that.

I hope Bill can resolve this issue as soon as possible and
can get the fix in before the major release.  I was one of those
poor saps in FC4 and I can tell you that FC4 first release
was a real piece of ****, because for me - I had to jump over
HUGE HURDLES to get to a level where I can proceed and thank
god I am an engineer and could do it, but for those who could
not are basically SOL waiting for the next major release, like
FC5 and I guess, unfortunately the vicious cycle might repeat

I have offered to give you any information you want from me
so that I could help you, and this community, and anyone
who have mvidia chipsets in their motherboard like I do.

I have responded to Bill as soon as I woke up and read his
message to me (from a different email thread) and did an
[strace /sbin/kudzu] and gave him the output trace as
requested so hopefully this will be something that may
give him a handle on the issue.

If there is anything else I can do to help, let me know!

I am currently running FC5T3 right now as I have bypassed
the kudzu boot script until this issue is resolved.  Please
be nice and let me know if a fix has been generated.
