Description of problem:
Installed FC1 on a Sony Vaio PCG-FX120.  Ran up2date and updated
kernel/source to

When booting with acpi=on, the system is able to detect my pcmcia 
card (a NetGear MA401) but hangs shortly thereafter.  It hangs at:

ACPI: Subsystem revision 20031002
PCI: PCI BIOS revision 2.10 entry at 0xfd9b0, last bus=1
PCI: Using configuration type 1

I've also tried booting with acpi=on and pci=noacpi but the pcmcia 
card would not be detected and it would hang at the same spot. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Boot with acpi=on

Actual Results:  System hangs at:

ACPI: Subsystem revision 20031002
PCI: PCI BIOS revision 2.10 entry at 0xfd9b0, last bus=1
PCI: Using configuration type 1

Expected Results:  Gone through with bootup.

Can you check if a recent kernel still hangs on boot here?

Comment 2 gman 2004-04-07 02:32:15 EDT
I updated kernel to 2.4.22-1.2174.nptl but I get the same thing.

Comment 3 Len Brown 2004-04-11 03:14:03 EDT
I was thinking something a little _more_ recent;-) 
How about 2.4.26? 
Or 2.6.5, or the latest FC2 2.6 kernel? 
note, for testing w/ 2.6 on FC1 
Go here http://people.redhat.com/arjanv/2.6/RPMS.kernel/ 
rpm -Uvh modutils...  
rpm -Uvh mkinitrd...  
rpm -ivh kernel...  
Also, if you can build with CONFIG_ACPI_DEBUG=y 
and boot with "debug" on the cmdline, it would be interesting 
if any additional messages came out at the hang. 
Another combo to try: 
"acpi=on" "noapic" 
"acpi=on" "pci=noacpi" "noapic" 
to see if they do not hang.

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/
