Description Erik Pedersen 2006-05-04 10:40:56 EDT
Description of problem:
I ran yum update on two machines. One of them picked up the smp kernel, the 
other just the regular i686 kernel. None of them could boot that kernel. One 
machine is a kp220d, the other a very new dell. Both of them boot the 
2.6.16-1.2096-kernel just fine. It gets to just after udev is OK then X tries 
to start, and then it just hangs

How reproducible:

as often as you want

Steps to Reproduce:
1.turn the computer off
2.turn the computer on
Actual results: Computer hangs right after udev OK

Expected results:the computer should boot

A note that I did not suspend before booting into this kernel. Why it decided to
check for a signature in swap is beyond me. The previous kernel does not do
this. kernel 2096_FC5

Killing the X-Server with Ctrl-Alt-Backspace helped for me.
Comment 4 C. P. Price 2006-05-04 15:01:14 EDT
i have the identical symptoms that cornette reports; boot to 2096 works fine.
nice to learn about the ctrl-alt-backspace frob.

You seem to have removed this kernel now, which is good, but it would be nice 
if you said so here, so that repositories like livna could remove the 2107 
kernel modules
