[CentOS] Server hangs initializing audio

It sounds like this is happening when /etc/rc.sysinit runs. Pretty odd
that only happens intermittently.

I kinda question whether it acutally hangs loading audio drivers..if you
look at the script it does not print "audio" until after it loads those
drivers. It could be hanging when loading a module after that. I would
suggest either adding some debugging lines to that script..or if you are
sure that it actually is the "audio" bit that is hanging your server,
just comment out the lines that load sound drivers.

(it's a little gross to suggest changing a file like rc.sysinit, but to
me it sounds like the only way to track down which module is actually
hanging the server)

Subject: [CentOS] Server hangs initializing audio

I have a server that frequently hangs while rebooting.  I see no errors,
but during the boot process it stops at this stage:

    Initializing hardware... storage network audio

The cursor sits just after the word "audio" and I have to do a hard
reset to get out of it.  This server has no audio capabilities, so I am
thinking that I just need to disable the audio stuff so it doesn't even
try to load it, but I don't know where to look.
