x86_64 boot stops at "io scheduler cfq registered" with ati chipset
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:24:12 EST
Description of problem:
I can get recent rawhide (fc devel) x86_64 kernels to boot on my AMD64 box.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to boot boot.iso
2. Or install above kernels in say rawhide-20060103 and reboot
Boot stops at "io scheduler cfq registered" message and nothing happens.
Need to powercycle to reboot.
Kernels up to at least 2.6.14-1.1808_FC5 are ok (I don't have any builds
after rawhide-20060103 and before rawhide-20060107 to test) so this started
happening recently, ie this year.
Fwiw NumLock is still one when it hangs just as a point of reference.
Can't reproduce this on my x86_64 system. Do you have ACPI on? The new
kernels need acpi to be on. The next line after the cfq line is ACPI: PCI ...
so if you have noacpi on your kernel line, remove and try again.
if you boot with initcall_debug whats the last thing it says ?
Does this have an ATI chipset by any chance ? (If so 2.6.15-1826.2.10 should fix it)
Yes it does: ATI Radeon Xpress 200.
ok. magic 8-ball says... "Fixed for tomorrows build".
Confirmed fixed. Thanks.
