Comment 1 Dave Jones 2004-01-30 20:28:43 EST
sounds like your initrd is broken.  try updating mkinitrd to latest,
and reinstalling the 2149 kernel.
Comment 2 lynn wheeler 2004-01-31 01:23:27 EST
the fedora mkinitrd was built/installed from ISO/CDROM. I replaced it
with a mkinitrd copied from a redhat 9 system that i have. I then
rebuilt the 2149 kernel and it booted fine

-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root        14737 Jan 30 22:35 mkinitrd
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root        15448 Jan 30 22:34 mkinitrd.fedora
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2004-02-02 18:55:16 EST
Can you attach your grub.conf?
Comment 4 lynn wheeler 2004-02-02 19:37:08 EST
Created attachment 97426 [details]
grug.conf from fedora

grub.conf file the same before and after copying mkinitrd 
from redhat9 system and re-installing both 2149 and 2149smp.

note this is a two processor dimension 410 which has a separate
problem that 2149smp boot just hangs.
Comment 5 David Lawrence 2004-09-29 16:02:13 EDT
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/
