Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2004-05-19 15:32:56 EDT
can you try the "acpi=off" option ?
Comment 2 sven selle 2004-05-19 16:44:07 EDT
hi Arjan,

i have tried this option and it works. sorry for spam!
Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2004-05-19 16:48:38 EDT
we're only starting.. the bug isn't fixed just worked around..
Comment 4 Len Brown 2004-05-19 18:01:01 EDT
can you capture any more of the kernel panic text? 
does it look like bug 121760 or different? 
Comment 5 sven selle 2004-05-20 03:02:41 EDT
i will try to capture more text from the kernel panic text (but i
still dont know how, because i cant "copy + paste" it) today i will
install FC2 completly and than i'm able to say if its the same bug
like 121760. i had similar problems (with acpi) as i tried to compile
kernel 2.4.21 with debian sid on this pc, but the problem was fixed in
vanillakernel 2.6.0-test8 or test9. that's why i'm astonished that the
problem is back again in 2.6.5. 
Comment 6 sven selle 2004-05-20 05:33:10 EDT
ok, i have looked again to bug 121760 and it seems that is the same
problem. the kernel panic output looks similar to my output (im not
sure if it's 100% the same but i think so...). vanilla kernel 2.6.5
runs on the centrino without any problems (debian sid).
Comment 7 Len Brown 2004-05-22 01:18:16 EDT
One of the submitters of bug 121760 said that an earler FC2 kernel worked. 
It would be interesting if you tried a kernel.org 2.6.6 or 2.6.7 kernel to 
see if this is a recent regression due to picking up a bug from upstream. 
Comment 8 Dave Jones 2005-04-16 00:30:04 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.
