Description drago01 2004-08-04 11:45:12 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de-DE; rv:1.7)
Gecko/20040626 Firefox/0.9.1

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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
see description 

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

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.
Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2004-08-04 11:59:08 EDT
also you're using the nvidia module.... 
Comment 4 drago01 2004-08-04 12:18:21 EDT
After uninstalling the ntfs module the and removing pci=usepirqmask
form grub the reboot workes fine
Comment 5 drago01 2004-08-04 12:33:32 EDT
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
Comment 6 Arjan van de Ven 2004-08-04 12:34:33 EDT
the script is really broken though.... and indeed will not result in
working modules (only sometimes by pure luck maybe)
Comment 7 drago01 2004-08-04 12:38:42 EDT
Ok than i have to wait until the there is a precompiled rpm.
