Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot (Dual boot on VAIO notebook with XP)
Starting udev disabling irq#10
It halts at initial stage of the boot procedure with some assurace that its
trying something in the background.
This model (vaio fj100 series) has builtin camera as extra feature. I did
install using fc5t3 dvd as dual boot with xp, though I had to use qtparted for
partitioning for anaconda failed to partition (automatic or forced). vaio comes
with two partition (perhaps a rescue partition for xp of about 6Gig at the
beginning of the disk). I used conventional ext3 and swap allocation (LVM option
is not clear to me, how to install on that).
anyhow, rest of the installation went smooth, but it does not reboot. I tried
going to the 'interactive' feature by pressing 'I' at boot, but it did not enter.
This is a kernel module causing the hardlock... maybe the kernel team knows more..
A new kernel update has been released (Version: 2.6.18-1.2200.fc5)
based upon a new upstream kernel release.
Please retest against this new kernel, as a large number of patches
go into each upstream release, possibly including changes that
may address this problem.
