rhgb crash with new FC5 kernel 2107
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:32 EST
Description of problem:
I installed new kernel FC5 2107.
Now rhgb crah in graphic mode with the X old cursor.
Note: With kernel 2096 rhgb run ok.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
In grub I don't start kernel with rhgb.
I can confirm this bug report. It happens for me on two different system (laptop
and desktop) running FC 5 with all updates (5/4/2006)
booting the kernel 2107 with rhgb:
X screen appears, system doesn't keep booting, no login screen
It is possible to press Ctrl+Alt+backspace. After this boot process is resumed.
booting the older 2096 kernel:
everthing works fine
It seems, that this problem disappeared in the last kernel update. With
2.6.16-1.2111_FC5 the problem doesn't occur any more on my system.
However, that kernel's changelog doesn't mention anything related:
* Thu May 04 2006 Dave Jones <email@example.com> [2.6.16-1.2111_FC5]
- Revert broken Xen update that sneaked into the last update.
* Wed May 03 2006 Dave Jones <firstname.lastname@example.org>
- disable MSI until 2.6.17.
