Description Matt Williams 2005-02-18 16:06:22 UTC
Description of problem:
Installed FC3 from CDs. Existing problems with "Media Integrity"
(already filed in Bugzilla by other users).

Finally got it installed; Now hangs on boot.
Previous suggestions have said deleting the rhgb quiet options; This
doesn't make any difference.
Traced fault to having a mouse (Microsoft Optical with cord) plugged
in during boot. Mouse is plugged in via a USB port.
I think this is a KUDZU problem, but I'm not sure...

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

How reproducible:
Always (on my system)

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install FC3, without OpenOffice 
2.Try to Boot
3.Hangs on detecting new hardware
Actual results: Hangs

Expected results:Boot Cleanly

Have now explored this.....NOT a KUDZU problem, but can be solved by
booting with acpi=off as a kernal option. No idea why.....

Comment 2 Dave Jones 2005-07-15 17:29:06 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.

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.
