Description Wade Hampton 2005-08-09 20:25:38 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050719 Fedora/1.7.10-1.3.1

Description of problem:
The system is a Supermicro dual 2.4G XEON workstation with dual ATAPI drives, PS/2 keyboard, and PS/2 mouse.  I updated from RH9 to FC4.0 (with some pain), and upon first boot, the SMP kernel OOPS'ed.  If I turned on ACPI in the BIOS, the SMP kernel would boot, but I did not have a keyboard or mouse.  The upgraded 2.6.12 SMP kernel would at least boot.  I can provide additional information including motherboard, etc. tomorrow.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.6.11 and 2.6.12 kernels

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Turn on computer
2.  Select SMP kernel
3.  Try to use the keyboard

Actual Results:  no keyboard or mouse

Expected Results:  a functioning computer

Additional info:

Tried the i8042.nomux kernel option.  I still can not boot.  Currently I am
using Fedora Core 4 kernel 2.6.12-1.1398_FC4smp.
Comment 2 Wade Hampton 2005-08-15 13:35:31 EDT
Bios was version 1.0.  I visited the Supermicro site and downloaded/installed
bios 1.3b.  Upon reboot, the system now has a keyboard/mouse with SMP kernel! 
Issue appeared to be the bios version.
Comment 3 Wade Hampton 2005-08-27 11:11:13 EDT
I do recommend that this be added to a FAQ.  If others find a similar problem,
upgrading the BIOS could be the solution.
