Description david 2004-04-13 19:16:09 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET 
CLR 1.1.4322)

Description of problem:
When Fedora C1 is installed on a server with an Intel CA810E 
motherboard, linux will fail to boot if the keyboard is not 
connected.  The same motherboard worked fine with Redhat 6.2 and 
Redhat 7.2 installed with a variety of kernel errata applied.  Since 
I have lots of these motherboards, I've tested it on numerous 
servers. Also tried a variety of BIOS options, but no change.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl  kernel-2.4.22-1.2174.nptl

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Fedora
2.Unplug keyboard
3.reboot server

Actual Results:  server fails to boot

Expected Results:  server would boot up normally

Additional info:

[root@ds65 root]# rpm -q kernel

The kernel gets this far before it hangs.

I have the intel reference board version of the same here, and without
keyboard it too hangs at apm: and the kernel appears to enter APM and
never return. acpi seems to just work however
Comment 2 David Lawrence 2004-09-29 16:19:13 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/
