Description Dirk Gfroerer 2004-12-16 03:51:54 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.3)

Description of problem:
I'm trying to workaround a bug with my disks not getting detected (see
bugzilla #142954. As another report (bugzilla #140352) indicates
booting without SMP might solve the problem.
However giving nosmp as a command line option results in the machine
to hang during the boot process. Booting without nosmp works as expected.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add nosmp to the command line option of the kernel.
2. Boot.


Actual Results:  Machine hangs.

Expected Results:  Machine boots

Additional info:

One thing to note about the floppy drive. It doesn't exist at all! As
you can see from the attached boot log this is virtual floppy drive
injected by the Dell Remote Management Card. It doesn't matter if a
(remote) floppy drive is being made available using the Management
Card or not.
The machine itself is a new Dell PowerEdge 1800 (BIOS A00) equipped
with two 3 GHz Intel EM64T processors and 4 GB RAM. The remote
management card is a  Dell Remote Access Controller 4/P (BIOS A00).
