From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de-DE; rv:1.7)
Description of problem:
I installed the new kernel today via up2date.
After rebooting into the new kernel everything seems fine.
Then i have build a ntfs module with this scripts:
http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/rpm/build.html (i used the 2.6 one
with kernel-sourcecode 2.6.7-1.494.2.2.noarch )
After installing and loading it i wanted to reboot.
I typed the command reboot. It said System is goinig down for reboot
bla bla ....
but nothing happend. Then i have rebooted with init 6 (it stoppend
while showing Preparing System for Reboot). Than i used the reset switch.
after booting i was'nt able to mount my ntfs volume.
I looked into /var/log/messages and found some errors (see attachment).
I have also installed the nvidia driver and it worked fine.
Acpi is on.
I have a AMD 2800 (Barton) and an MSI MB with a VIA chip.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: I am unable to reboot without pressing the reset switch.
I can't build a working ntfsmodule.
Expected Results: The system should reboot normaly.
The kernel should be able to mount an ntfsfs after building and
loading the ntfs module

The errormessages form /var/log/messages
from that page:
" Note: If you are using Fedora 2, then these instructions won't work
for you. I shall try and write some before Fedora 2 is released. "
he's right, those instructions are entirely wrong for the FC2 kernel.
also you're using the nvidia module....
After uninstalling the ntfs module the and removing pci=usepirqmask
form grub the reboot workes fine
From the site:
" Now, download the build script: (either build-2.4 for RedHat and Fedora
1 kernels, or build-2.6 for >>>Fedora 2 kernels<<<) and the RPM spec
the script is really broken though.... and indeed will not result in
working modules (only sometimes by pure luck maybe)
Ok than i have to wait until the there is a precompiled rpm.
