Can you attach your FC6 boot messages so I can see what hardware you have and
how it is configured when working.

Boot messages from offending computer

I burned this file to CD from FC6 through GNOME also.

Comment 4 Vegard Lima 2007-03-17 21:07:47 UTC
Have similar problem with the FC7 test 2 live cd on my laptop.
lspci -v:
00:10.0 IDE interface: ALi Corporation M5229 IDE (rev c4) (prog-if 8a [Master
SecP Pri P])

The failure message is something like this:

ata2.00: exception Emask 0x0 SAct 0x0 SErr 0x0 action 0x2 frozen
ata2.00: cms a0/01:00:00:00:00/00:00:00:00:00/a0 tag 0 cdb 0x12 data 36 in
         res 40/00:00:00:00:00/00:00:00:00:00/00 Emask 0x4 (timeout)
ata2: soft resetting port

Hope that helps.

Test patch posted to linux-kernel list


Comment 6 Vegard Lima 2007-03-29 15:05:26 UTC
Applied this patch: http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/3/27/172
to 2.6.21-rc5-mm2. Got exactly the same error message.
Then removed the cdrom. Then it says:

ata2: BUG: prereset() requested invalid reset type

The kernel then proceeds to panic as it can't find root filesystem.


Comment 7 Matthew Miller 2007-04-10 15:57:28 UTC
Bulk message: Fedora 7 test bugs should be filed against "devel", not against
test1/2/3. This isn't obvious, I know. Moving this report so it isn't lost.
