The kudzu program has a problem while the graphical boot is running.
When it detects new hardware that has to be configured, the program
runs, but there is no opportunity for the user to make the selection
whether or not to configure the hardware. Not even ctrl-alt-bksp will
get you to the right screen. Depending on how much hardware needs to be
configured, this could cause delays upward of three minutes or more. As
a solution, I suggest this change to the kudzu startup script. This
should run kudzu without requiring any user input.
The fact that you're running X shouldn't mean that you don't want
to see the messages; there are better ways to fix this; I should
actually build one of them one of these days.
