Description G.S. Link 2006-06-28 15:23:09 EDT
Description of problem: For any kernel in FC 4 or 5 beyond about 16-1.2078
Dosbox causes a hard crash.  Both the keyboard and mouse are ignored and
pressing reset is the only way to unlock the machine.

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

How reproducible: Every time on any kernel beyond 2078

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Update to any recent kernel
2.Run Dosbox
Actual results:Hard crash

Expected results:Should run

Additional info:  There appear to be other problems of this type in other
applications but this is the best documented.  The Dosbox used was the one on
the RH web site that matched the system.
Comment 1 G.S. Link 2006-07-24 16:51:35 EDT
This bug now appears to be fixed in the latest version of the kernel for FC4. 
It still appears in FC6 but may vanish when the kernel is upgraded.
