Description Shawn Masters 2004-05-07 08:54:16 EDT
Description of problem:

On booting the CD for test3 everything goes ok, until the text dialog
for aic7xxx driver.  At this point the boot process locks up.  Fedora
Core 1 works fine for this same platform.

The other VCs display indicate the following:

3) Loaded mii, e100, aic7xxx and cciss in that order, then inserted
mii, e100.  Nothing else
4) Detects the Compaq OEM Adaptec 3960D  using Adpatec AIC7XXX Rev
6.2.36.  There is one line after with the tag "<4>" and nothing else.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot Fedora Core 2 Test 3 CD
Actual results: Lock up on boot.

Expected results: Proceed to installation.

This is a single processor machine.  Booting with acpi=off seems to
work just fine.

Comment 3 Dave Jones 2004-12-08 01:34:22 EST
any improvement with latest update ?
Comment 4 Dave Jones 2005-04-16 02:04:41 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.
