Description Alan Cox 2004-09-27 17:55:09 EDT
Large Athlon64 box, the installer faults at RIP 0x46e480, with or
without ACPI, and whether or not DNS lookups work.

NFS install always crashing just after the IP adderess is obtained and
the lookup of the hostname completes.

Box appears to happily be running installed FC2.

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2004-09-27 21:42:27 EDT
Can you get further for any other install type?  What are the last
messages on tty3/tty4?  

And please define "large athlon64 box" as that's not very descriptive
of the hardware.
Comment 2 Alan Cox 2004-09-28 12:35:41 EDT
I've stripped the box down and get the same problem, so its now 

AMD Athlon64
ABIT KV8Pro Motherboard
Radeon 9000Pro using analog output
Onboard VIA velocity Gigabit ethernet
One IDE Hard disk
Mobility electronics split bridge card
USB Webcam

I'll take the last two off for the next test, I forgot them last time.

Not tried other install types yet.
Comment 3 Alan Cox 2004-09-28 13:20:50 EDT
Ok it seems to be the Webcam. If I remove the webcam then it works.

USB legacy is off so it doesn't look like SMM bugs. It blows up
reliably with the camera present at the address reported and just
after "Reverse domain name lookup failed". With it removed it gets
further. Its currently updating packages
Comment 4 Alan Cox 2004-09-28 14:31:14 EDT
Ok without the camera it all works, and finished an update.  The
camera is a creative camera using the vision chip
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2004-09-28 17:05:00 EDT
Post-install, if you plug the camera in, does it crash if you run
kudzu -p -b USB?
Comment 6 Alan Cox 2004-09-28 17:30:05 EDT
It doesnt
Comment 7 Alan Cox 2004-11-04 07:33:51 EST
Ok this is the webcam, its a lock/recursion between the kernel and
user space when loading the driver, and fixed in the current -ac kernel
Comment 8 Dave Jones 2005-07-15 14:51:01 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.
Comment 9 Alan Cox 2005-09-08 05:29:05 EDT
Fixed in errata kernels.
