Description david 2004-04-13 23:16:09 UTC
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

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/
