User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1)
Description of problem:
Every time I boot from the disc it fails with a kernel panic fairly
early. Standard distro downloaded from the ftp site.
Dual Opteron 242 (1.6 Ghz)
Diamond Data 52x CDRW
ACPI turned off
ECC turned on (also tried with off)
Redhat 9.0 installs and runs fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. insert Fedora core1 x86-64 disc1
2. press F8 to bring up boot menu during POST
3. Select CD drive
Actual Results: Kernel panic
Expected Results: complete boot sequence
Seems that kernel panic is in calculate_acpi_pci_delay_cost() (or similar)
Setting "ACPI aware OS" to "Enabled" in the BIOS stops the kernel panic.
Still a bug but at least there is a workaround.
correct function name is acpi_pci_link_calc_penalties().
Confirmed not present in FC2test3
