Description Jun 2005-12-13 13:45:29 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
When I used the smp kernel (kernel-smp-2.6.14-1.1644_FC4) it takes about 15 mins or more to boot up my HP ZX5000 laptop.  Using the none smp kernel, boots up fine.

I am using a P4 3.06ghz HT northwood processor

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Use the kernel-smp-2.6.14-1.1644_FC4

Actual Results:  very slow bootup

Expected Results:  normal speed bootup similar to none SMP kernel

Additional info:

It seems other kernels after 2.6.12 is also suffering from this problem.


A workaround is given here
