Description Jan Wynholds 2004-04-12 20:09:12 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1)

Description of problem:
Didn't know where to submit this one, so apologies in advance if this
is submitted in the wrong place.

For an AMD K6-2 (400 MhZ) w/ 256mb ram, Tyan Trinity (sticker on chip
reads SiS 5595 chipset, dmesg reports a SiS 5513 chipset) motherboard,
SIS 530 AGP card:

1.  Insert CD #1, get the option: prompt.

2.  Select 'linux nofb', 'linux noprobe', and every combination thereof.

3.  After uncompressing the kernel, the machine automagically reboots
after 'Loading initrd......' 

Everything works fine for RHL9....

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 2 test 1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert CD#1
2. Boot to any option

Actual Results:  Continuing, it says:
uncompressing kernel..............
loading initrd................

Expected Results:  Anaconda should have started.

any better with final releases ?
(especially interesting if fc3 still fails)
Comment 2 Jan Wynholds 2004-12-13 12:58:00 EST
This is a strange one:

The new FC3 dvd will boot and install fine, but the 1st disc of the CD set makes
the machine reboot just like it has been doing...  So I don't think the final
releases helped this machine with it's problem (but all my other machines work
fine with it...).
Comment 3 Dave Jones 2005-04-16 00:22:10 EDT
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.
