Description of problem:
When using the stock FC4 cd on an STL2 motherboard (more machine details below) hangs (really really hard) after the report that isapnp finds no plug and play cards. When I use the boot.iso in the development tree it hangs for a moment or two and then panics (trace below).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert CD
3. Wait for crash
Actual Results: Hang (fc4 stock) or kernel panic (6/14 development boot.iso)
Expected Results: Should have booted to anaconda
I'll call this normal priority despite the crash since it's likely very specific to this motherboard (reminiscent of the L440GX problems :-) ); install worked great on a sony laptop.
Machine specifics: Intel STL-2 motherboard, 2x1Ghz PIII, 4G RAM, PCI nvidia video, PCI dual channel symbios, PCI dual gig-e, and PCI initio-9100, onboard video disabled, tried with onboard usb both enabled and disabled [since normal kernel log shows usb after isapnp]. Currently running a personally compiled EL3 (from SRPMS) with custom kernel 184.108.40.206.
Here's the trace data from the development boot.iso:
Confirmed as a problem on my STL-2 motherboard. Dual 866MHz PIII, 1GB RAM, no
Confirmed as a problem on my Intel ISP 2150: Dual 1GHz PIII, 1GB RAM, SCSI.
1. Install from CD hangs right after isapnp test.
Still hangs with "noprobe" and/or "noisapnp".
2. Installed FC4 kernel (2.6.11-1.1369_FC4) by installing fedora-release rpm
and "yum upgrade kernel". It now hangs immediately after:
"Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel."
I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but when booting the FC3
kernel I get two copies of the following warning:
"agpgart: unable to determine aperture size."

I have the same problem!
STL2, 1.256GB RAM, AHA 2200S, 8xHDD, Matrox G200 PCI 8MB RAM.
Probably this is the AGP problem.
After PNP devices kernel check AGP version & aperture size.
I also have the same problem!
NEC Express 5800/120Ef. It has a ServerWorks GC-SL motherboard.
1x2.8G Xeon, 1GB RAM, onboard video and network.
No idea if this is relevant but...
There is a string of messages at the top of the screen with:
pnp: 00-07: ioport range 0x580 to 0x58d has been reserved
pnp: 00-07: ioport range 0xb04 to 0xb04 has been reserved
pnp: 00-07: ioport range 0x419 to 0x41b has been reserved (total 7 of them)
I have FC3 installed fine, had the same problem with a FC4 test and FC4
I found a suggestion to try:
linux acpi=off at the boot prompt during install.
This allowed the installation to proceed successfully.
(thanks to Klaus Kruger [email@example.com])
Indeed - works for me. Thanks!
OK! Working, but this is not good idea.
Now I don't have any sensors â temperature, fan...
[This comment has been added as a mass update for all FC4 kernel bugs.
If you have migrated this bug from an FC3 bug today, ignore this comment.]
Please retest your problem with todays 2.6.12-1.1398_FC4 update.
If your problem involved being unable to boot, or some hardware not being
detected correctly, please make sure your /etc/modprobe.conf is correct *BEFORE*
installing any kernel updates.
If in doubt, you can recreate this file using..
mv /etc/sysconfig/hwconf /etc/sysconfig/hwconf.bak
mv /etc/modprobe.conf /etc/modprobe.conf.bak
Works for me - I simply removed acpi=off and all's good now. Thanks!
