Description Ivo Sarak 2003-08-04 20:16:37 UTC
Description of problem:
RedHat Linux Beta Severn 1 is unable to perform a reboot on system with ECS
P6VEM3 (with integrated VIA C3 Samuel2 CPU) motherboard.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install/upgrade RH B1 Severn on a system with ECS P6VEM3 motherboard;
2. Try to reboot the box;

Actual results:
System will just hang after "Rebooting the system." message.

Expected results:
Clean reboot.

Additional info:
Strangely when to issue a poweroff, it will power the system off.
Also, I tried to enable/disable APM and/or ACPI in BIOS but no changes.

Comment 1 Dave Jones 2003-08-13 22:17:19 UTC
The next kernel has a patch which may fix this. Look out for a 1.2024.2.9 or newer
kernel to show up on Rawhide at some point.

Comment 2 Ivo Sarak 2003-08-13 22:35:01 UTC
OK, I'll try.

Comment 3 Ivo Sarak 2003-09-24 12:21:13 UTC
I upgraded to Severn Beta Upgrade Fedora kernel 2.4.22-1.2051.nptl and it does
not fix this problem.
