Description of problem:
After I boot the install CD, I choose any method of installation 
(graphical,text). The kernel starts to boot up and I get this kernel 
panic. It is fairly early on, this is as much as I was able to

Did this happen with test1?

Comment 2 Richard Nairn 2004-04-06 20:32:21 UTC
I haven't tried test1, test2 was the first testing set that I 

Comment 3 Len Brown 2004-04-11 07:36:21 UTC
does the system install if you boot with "acpi=off" or "pci=noacpi"? 
do any linux kernels boot on this system?  can you attach lspci -v output?

lspci -v output

Comment 5 Richard Nairn 2004-04-14 15:23:14 UTC
The machine is currently running Fedora Core 1 without any problems 
whatsoever. I was able to install and run it without any errors. 

Booting with "linux text pci=noacpi" didn't seem to change anything, 
booting with acpi=off produced this output (This was as far up the 
screen I could get):

Comment 6 Len Brown 2004-04-16 06:49:15 UTC
So FC1 installed and runs okay. 
How about if you boot FC1 with "acpi=on". 
So FC2-test2 with acpi=on (default) panics in the PCI code, called from acpi. 
and FC2-test2 with "acpi=off" panics in the PCI code called form init. 
Looking PCI-specific rather than ACPI specific at this point... 
Any chance you can load the latest 2.6 kernel onto FC1 and test that? 

Comment 7 Christopher Eveland 2004-05-19 14:00:16 UTC
I am getting the same problem on the recently-released FC2.  I have a
dual xeon.  Let me know if you want additional information.

Second "lspci -v" output

Comment 9 Richard Nairn 2004-07-13 15:46:26 UTC
I tested 2.6.5 on FC1, same issue. I'll try and get a newer one and
test again.

Comment 10 Richard Nairn 2004-07-13 16:05:13 UTC
I installed the latest kernel from FC2, kernel-2.6.6-1.435smp.i686,
still get the identical output as before. (both normal and with acpi=off) 

Comment 11 Dave Jones 2004-12-07 05:50:12 UTC
fixed with the 2.6.9 based kernel ?

Comment 12 Richard Nairn 2004-12-08 21:20:41 UTC
No, Used the RPM from FC3, still the same error.

Comment 13 Dave Jones 2005-04-16 04:18:53 UTC
Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat.  The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.

If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.

Thank you.
