Adaptec 39320 kernel feeze on booting from Install-DVD
Last modified: 2008-01-19 23:37:19 EST
Description of problem:
After booting from the Installation-DVD the system want's to load
the aic79xxx driver.
After showing the first of my 3 SCSI-Disks the kernel freezes with the following
BUG: spinlock recursion on CPU0 (scsi_eh_0/422)
currently FC4 is installed and runs without problems.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
just boot from the DVD
Created attachment 126843 [details]
dmesg output of the same machine in latest FC4 (2.6.15-1.1833_FC4)
Kenel V2.6.16-1.2069_FC4 does also freeze on FC4, so it should be a kernel-problem
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.

In the last few updates, some users upgrading from FC4->FC5
have reported that installing a kernel update has left their
systems unbootable. If you have been affected by this problem
please check you only have one version of device-mapper & lvm2
installed. See bug 207474 for further details.
If this bug is a problem preventing you from installing the
release this version is filed against, please see bug 169613.
If this bug has been fixed, but you are now experiencing a different
problem, please file a separate bug for the new problem.
