Description Daniel Senie 2003-03-18 00:34:22 UTC
Description of problem:

Intel D810EMO motherboard. The kernel which shipped with RedHat 7.2 boots just 
fine. The kernels from the last two errata, however, fail to boot. Booting 
stops after about 50 lines of boot-up messages.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

100% reliable hang.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RH7.2 on D810EMO system
2. Run Up2date to install errata
3. reboot.
Actual results:

Hangs during early phase of boot.

Last messages seen are:

Mar 17 17:32:04 anise kernel: isapnp: Scanning for PnP cards...
Mar 17 17:32:04 anise kernel: isapnp: No Plug & Play device found
Mar 17 17:32:04 anise kernel: Linux NET4.0 for Linux 2.4

Mar 17 17:32:04 anise kernel: Initializing RT netlink socket
Mar 17 17:32:04 anise kernel: apm: BIOS version 1.2 Flags 0x0b (Driver version 

Expected results:

Additional info:

Explicitly disabling APM in the /etc/grub.conf for the newer kernels permitted 
the machine to boot. As this is a server (yes, a little bitty one) there's no 
need for APM anyway, but it'd be nice if errata kernels could be installed 
without trouble.

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2003-03-18 09:05:53 UTC
can you attach the output of dmidecode so that your bios can be blacklisted for
apm automatically ?

Comment 2 Daniel Senie 2003-03-18 12:30:55 UTC
Created attachment 90639 [details]
output of dmidecode

as requested, the output of dmidecode so that this bios can be blacklisted from
apm use.

Comment 3 Daniel Senie 2003-03-18 12:33:35 UTC
Added dmidecode output as attachment.

Comment 4 Arjan van de Ven 2003-03-18 12:51:00 UTC
thanks. I've added the bios to the apm blacklist for future errata.

Comment 5 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 15:40:39 UTC
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
