Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2004-08-20 19:11:49 UTC
does your machine have a firewire controller ?

Comment 2 Phil Hale 2004-08-20 19:14:13 UTC
No firewall controller

Comment 3 Mark Rush 2004-09-12 20:58:56 UTC
I am seeing this on my system.  Boots fine if I disable onboard
firewire controller.  The firewire controller on my audio card doesn't
seem to be a problem.

Same here, my machine was stopping at "probing for hardware" with the
2.6.8-1.521smp or 2.6.8-1.521 kernels.. I disabled onboard IEEE and it
boots fine. I also have a PCI IEEE card , but it's enabled and shows
up in the hardware browser.

Comment 5 Dave Jones 2004-11-27 20:24:10 UTC
mass update for old bugs:

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

Comment 6 Phil Hale 2004-11-29 16:40:17 UTC
No longer an issue with the 2.6.9 series kernels

Comment 7 Dave Jones 2005-04-16 05:14:20 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.
