Description Don Harter 2006-05-15 02:59:09 UTC
Description of problem:
intallation stops because of disk read errors (dma) on Abit KN8 SLI motherboard

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Happens every time.  I don't have these problems with a custom kernel that I
made for version  It seems that the anaconda kernel version is not
configured right for my nforce nvidia motherboard or not recent enough.  I
replaced the vmlinuz image on the FC5 installation disk but ananconda would not
recognize the disk in a susequent installation try.  I need to know how to just
replace the anaconda kernel and its cpio initrd with my working kernel and how
to get it recognized.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.try to install FC5 from a burned CD of the iso images
Actual results:
disk errors

Expected results:
should read my disks ok.

Comment 2 Dave Jones 2006-10-16 17:27:16 UTC
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.

This bug has been placed in NEEDINFO state.
Due to the large volume of inactive bugs in bugzilla, if this bug is
still in this state in two weeks time, it will be closed.

Should this bug still be relevant after this period, the reporter
can reopen the bug at any time. Any other users on the Cc: list
of this bug can request that the bug be reopened by adding a
comment to the bug.

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.

Thank you.
