Description Cindy Dale 2000-05-05 01:05:28 UTC
We are trying to upgrade 4 machines. Everything seems to go fine until the end, where lilo bails with the ugly staircased messages. So we login as rescue, fix lilo, and reboot. Sometimes it locks up on keytable, but most of the time it goes through booting just fine, and locks up either at the login prompt or shortly thereafter. Nothing responds. We have tried the new boot disks, shipped kernel, new kernel, rawhide kernel, our own custom built kernel, and nothing works. At this point we are getting the servers up by booting into linux single and telinit 3 from there. Nothing locks up if we do it this way.

We can't reproduce this; I'm suspecting some conflict between your BIOS and the kernel. Please add some more information about the machines this happens on.
