Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 190689
2.6.16-1.2107_FC5 does not boot
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:31 EST
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
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

Kernel gave up and panicked
This text was captured via hyperterminal on another computer.
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.
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
