Description matthew gatto 2004-08-06 23:52:52 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.2)
Gecko/20040803 Epiphany/1.2.7

Description of problem:
I can't boot with the new kernel-2.6.7-1.494.2.2.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1) select kernel-2.6.7-1.494.2.2 from the grub boot menu and I get the
following output:

Red Hat nash version 3.5.22
irq 11: nobody cared! (screaming interrupt?)
irq 11: Please try booting with acpi=off and report a bug
[<2283c2a5>] (ata_interrupt+0x0/0x1cf [libata])
Disabling IRQ #11

Actual Results:  The computer hangs here.

Additional info:

Booting with acpi=off leads to the same behavior. Booting the old
kernel-2.6.6-1.435.2.3 works fine.

System specs: uniprocessor AMD Athlon Tbird on AOpen AK73 Pro (VIA
Apollo KT133 chipset) and a siimage 3112 SATA PCI card.

Maybe this is a dup of bug 123707?

Comment 1 Maurice Hoo 2004-08-15 17:33:34 UTC
Happens here too. 
Athlon XP2000 on ASUS A7N8X-DLX (ver. 1.3).

Comment 2 matthew gatto 2004-10-04 20:33:26 UTC
I re-enabled IDE-SATA and rebuilt kernel-2.6.8-1.521 from the SRPM and
it now boots and works. If anyone is interested in trying the RPM
(i686 architecture) I can put it online. I guess the problem was that
IDE-SATA was removed starting in Red Hat's 2.6.7 kernel exposing some
(ACPI?) hardware issues with libata.

Also, if there's anything I can do to help get libata SATA working
around the hardware issues (patches to try) please let me know.

Comment 3 Philippe Morry 2004-10-12 13:07:37 UTC
I'm interrested in this package !
i've the same problem with my Athlno 2800 - Asus A7N8X DLX !
Where could I find your package ?

Comment 4 matthew gatto 2004-10-12 20:42:18 UTC
I put it at http://sabersys.us/mattg/fedora/

I will be rebuilding it and uploading it as newer fedora-2 kernels are
released until the stock kernel is fixed to boot on my hardware.

Comment 5 Philippe Morry 2004-10-15 12:56:36 UTC
I had another problem with this kernel, I need the support of NTFS
which is not in this kernel. So I rebuild it myself.

Comment 6 matthew gatto 2004-11-25 03:36:47 UTC
I still get this on kernel-2.6.9-1.6_FC2 with the following boot
output, after which it hangs:

argh, i guess the Windows carriage returns didn't show up in gedit but
they did here... sorry.

Comment 8 Dave Jones 2004-11-27 22:32:10 UTC
mass update for old bugs:

Is this still a problem in the 2.6.9 based kernel update ?

Comment 9 matthew gatto 2004-12-02 13:59:34 UTC
This is still a problem with kernel-2.6.9-1.6_FC2 on my hardware. See
my above comment #6. Rebuilding the kernel from the SRPM with IDE SATA
re-enabled fixes it for me.

Could some reopen this for me?

Comment 10 Dave Jones 2004-12-02 15:57:29 UTC
can you be more specific what you mean by reenabling sata ?
The FC2 kernel has SATA enabled.

Comment 11 matthew gatto 2004-12-02 16:36:48 UTC
I mean changing this:

Comment 12 Dave Jones 2004-12-02 18:43:23 UTC
Ah. That's going to make it use the legacy IDE drivers instead of libata.

Adding Jeff to the Cc, as I guess he might have some clues.

Comment 13 Jeff Garzik 2005-03-25 07:38:31 UTC
FYI, http://lkml.org/lkml/2005/3/25/33

Comment 14 Dave Jones 2005-04-16 04:03:43 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.
