Description Hamilton Leeper 2004-09-21 01:17:45 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.2)

Description of problem:
My computer (an Athlon XP 2100+ with Gigabyte GA-7VRX motherboard) has
always had these panics while booting any 2.6 kernel without the
acpi=off option.  For some reason, either the FC3T2 grub or the kernel
itself are making it so passing that option no longer keeps it from

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
I couldn't get the kernel to boot at all.

Comment 1 Dave Jones 2005-07-15 14:11:09 EDT
An update has been released for Fedora Core 3 (kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3) which
may contain a fix for your problem.   Please update to this new kernel, and
report whether or not it fixes your problem.

If you have updated to Fedora Core 4 since this bug was opened, and the problem
still occurs with the latest updates for that release, please change the version
field of this bug to 'fc4'.

Thank you.

Did this get fixed in the Final FC3 ?

can you include the output of that panic message please ?

Panics in the installer kernel are usually a problem that we can't really
workaround however, so the answer may be 'try fc4' here.

This bug has been mass-closed along with all other bugs that
have been in NEEDINFO state for several months.

Due to the large volume of inactive bugs in bugzilla, this
is the only method we have of cleaning out stale bug reports
where the reporter has disappeared.

If you can reproduce this bug with current FC3 updates, please
reopen this bug.

If you are not the reporter, you can add a comment requesting
it be reopened, and someone will get to it asap.

If you are not the reporter, but can reproduce this problem against
FC4, please open a new bug.

Thank you.
