Description Mathijs Tieleman 2004-11-20 13:54:57 UTC
My DELL is a 3.06 GHZ HeaderThreading laptop (5150). As default Fedora
Core 3 chooses the SMP kernel, which is ok, but after the startup it
suddenly hangs completely with a full running harddisk.

I can't find anything in any logfile after having it rebooted. The
non-SMP kernel or an own build kernel runs fine. This was the same as
in Core 2.


Comment 1 Dave Jones 2004-11-20 19:28:42 UTC
can you boot without the 'quiet' boot argument and see if there are any
interesting kernel messages ?

Comment 2 Dave Jones 2005-07-15 19:51:38 UTC
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 3 Dave Jones 2005-10-03 00:33:02 UTC
This bug has been automatically closed as part of a mass update.
It had been in NEEDINFO state since July 2005.
If this bug still exists in current errata kernels, please reopen this bug.

There are a large number of inactive bugs in the database, and this is the only
way to purge them.

Thank you.
