Text from failed re-install.
Looked for log of failed boot in messages but cant find any referaces for 1977

Now it's working again with kernel 2.6.15-1.1955_FC5smp
Forgot to add this before. The hardware is an Intel D865PERL motherboard with
3GHz P4 and a standard PS2 optical mouse. I think I installed a Seagate SATA
hard drive also. Device is /dev/sda1
I'm having a similar experience with my old trusty athlon 1800mp smp system
using the 1975 and 1977 smp kernels.
Normally tne next message would be about LVM detection
Last messuage on boot concerns the ImPS/2 mouse
kernels that will not boot:
kernels that will boot:
I wonder is this related to a mkinitrd update perhaps and its just showing up as
a kernel problem?
wierder and weirder... kernel-2.6.15-1.1977_FC5 boots without issue whereas
the smp kernel fails to boot with the odd PS/2 mouse error so far reported.
I disconnect the mouse and try to boot kernel-smp-2.6.15-1.1977_FC5 and I get a
AT keyboard error at the same point in the boot scroll.
of course trying to boot without the keyboard makes my bios freakout so I can't
I've even downgraded to a mkinitrd that I know should work, and no difference.
So it appears to be an issue only with the smp kernels and its not just mouse
probing that has a problem.. mouseless systems result in a similar error with
the keyboard input.
I'm not sure how to get more information out of the scroll other than to attempt
to take a screenshot with my digital camera, which I really suck at doing.
Please let me know what you'd like me to do to get more feedback from this system.
