Here is the full sentence.

いったいなにをさわいどるんかの

What does the bolded part mean?

7

It's [一体]{いったい}[何]{なに}を[騒]{さわ}いでいるんだ? or 騒いでいるんですか? "What's the fuss about?" in some regional dialect or the role language for old speakers.

    To add, what is happening here is that おる is basically a dialectal form of いる, so we have さわいでおる, and then the でお contracts to ど, giving さわいどる. – senshin Apr 11 '15 at 0:55
