Description Clay Jackson 2005-01-02 00:18:33 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5)

Description of problem:
Kernel Panic occurs during 'Checking for new hardware' if a SANDISK
8-in-1 card reader is plugged into the USB bus at boot time.  Panic is
in SCSI_MOD module.  If you'll tell me how to capture the stack trace
at that time, I will do so.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Power off
2.Plug Sandisk device into USB port

Actual Results:  Crash/panic

Expected Results:  Clean boot

Additional info:

System is an ECS P6VEM3 motherboard, with the VIA C3 1.1 GigaPro
chipset.  Award BIOS dated 11/13/2002.   At boot, I also see a message
about the BIOS being too old for ACPI (which may or may not be
related) and the USB bus is registered and then DEREGISTERED.  To use
USB, I have to manually 'modprobe usb_controller'.

Which kernel RPM version you are running?

Comment 5 Dave Jones 2005-07-15 19:01:36 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.

There are a large number of inactive bugs in the database, and this is the only

Thank you.
