Description of problem:
I have 2 Intel Jarrell System with Chipset E7520 ( DDR2 memory ).
Both system work with kernels upto kernel-smp-2.6.6-*
If I use a kernel 2.6.7* or 2.6.8* the system does not boot -
the system hangs starting pcmcia,
also eth0 interface is not started.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Have a Intel Jarrell system
2.Install most recent fedora kernel
3.boot the system
If I configure
chkconfig pcmcia off
then the system hangs in cups .
smells like broken irq routing....
I could solve the problem with a hardware change -
I replaced the SCSI backplane (beta level) with
a SCSI backplane (silver level) and did also a firmware update
for the backplane.
I think, that we can close this issue now.
thanks for confirming that this is fixed.
however please in the future consider mentioning the beta state of the
hardware/firmware in the original report. Thanks.
