Description of problem:
When I boot FC2, the kernel hangs after mounting the root filesystem.

My hardware is as follows:
- Asus P4C800 Deluxe Mobo
- Intel Pentium 4 3.0 GHz
- ATI Radeon 9800 Pro graphics card from HIS
- Maxtor (parallel) ATA 133 HDD on primary IDE-Controller (NO SATA!)
- A LG DVD-Drive and a Plextor CD-RW burner (I don't remember exact
- USB mouse and keyboard 

I tried to fotograph the kernel messages (see website
www.allotria.ch/kernel for the pictures). Unfortunately, some pics are
very blury.

The first two pictures were taken with acpi enabled, hence the IRQ
#169, the later ones with kernel options "acpi=off apm=off i8042.nomux"

Intrestingly the FC2-Installer went through, albeit veery slowly.
Sometimes the mouse hanged for about a minute before I could move it
one more. I did not pass any kernel parameters on installation.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot
2. System hangs


Actual Results:  Kernel lockes up.

Expected Results:  System should boot up and function normally

Additional info:

I tried the special Asus P4P800 Boot-CD but with same result.

Similar situation for 2.6.9-1.667smp FC3

System boots up. At the process of starting KDE, GNOME or XFce the
system freezes. No mouse move, no Ctrl-Alt-... working. Only po ssible
to turn off machine to reboot. Non-smp works fine.

On four different machines, three of them quite simple config (only

Comment 2 Dave Jones 2005-01-14 05:41:48 UTC
any improvement with the latest update ?

Comment 3 Dave Jones 2005-04-16 05:57:42 UTC
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.
