Description Florin Andrei 2004-04-01 17:57:23 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040116

Description of problem:
Well, the L440GX+ bug is still not fixed. Booting up the test2 install
CD on a L440GX+ dual-Xeon system (fortunately not hit by the test2
installer CD boot bug ;-)) and it hangs at "Loading SCSI driver" with
message "Loading aic7xxx driver..."
Some stuff i see in the virt consoles:
The Alt-F3 console: i see "loaded mii", "loaded e100", "loaded
aic7xxx" but then only "inserted mii" and "inserted e100" but no
"inserted aic7xxx" (i'm not quoting exactly).
The Alt-F4 console: i see the beginning of the SCSI driver messages,
like the first 3 or 4 lines or so, but that's where it hangs, it
doesn't detect any devices, or anything.
It just hangs, and that's pretty much it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.3-2.1.253.2.1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot up test2 on a L440GX+ system
2.
3.
    

Actual Results:  The installer hangs when loading up the SCSI driver.

Expected Results:  The installer should not hang.

Does acpi=force fix this ? - or test3. The Intel guys were submitting
a fix upstream for the pirq routing bug.
Comment 2 Florin Andrei 2004-05-03 12:00:22 EDT
With acpi=force, i can boot up FC2test3 just fine.
It's just the installer that needs the parameter. Once installed, it
makes no difference whether i use the parameter or not, it works anyway.
It's a dual-CPU PIII, if that has any importance.
Comment 3 Alan Cox 2004-05-03 15:22:54 EDT
Thanks.. should get fixed entirely with the upstream intel change then.

The bit that matters is the chipset. We had a bug in dealing with it
in non ACPI mode due to a little difference of design opinion between
it and the kernel. 2.4 got a fix, 2.6 slipped it.
