Description erikj 2005-08-19 19:06:26 UTC
Without this patch: http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-ia64&m=112300257718539&w=2 A prism crashes early in the boot messages. I'm assigning this to you Prarit since you posted the LKML thing. I'm just trying to avoid dropping the ball. If you have another bug on this that I missed or think it's stupid to have this open, just close it. When I added this patch to the patch list for the 2.6.12-1.1492_FC5 kernel, the problem went away. The patch applies cleanly at the end of the patch list for the 1492 RPM. I didn't see any follow-up to your LKML post. I assume we're just waiting for them to pull it in.

ia64 is not an officially supported architecture of Fedora, but if you can get the fix for this into the upstream kernel.org kernel, then it will be quickly into the FC5 kernel as we pull from git snapshots regularly.

Erik, It looks like this patch was ported into the latest FC5. When you get a chance, would you mind trying it again? It works on my PRISM here in Westford. (You'll still fail due to the missing LSI driver, but you shouldn't oops until after the initrd is expanded) Thanks, P.

Using the latest boot.img to launch the installer... The installer actually starts up, which means I see this as fixed as well since we'd die before the kernel fully started before. (The installer hits a python error but that's a different issue). Closing.
