Don't boot after reboot, shutdown -r, init 6 halt only.
My system is:
DEC PC 5510 BIOS 1.11 PhoenixBIOS 4.0 Release 6.0
Sounds like a bad interaction with your BIOS.
What happens if you boot with 'reboot=bios' or 'reboot=warm'?
The same happens in any case: reboot=h,c or h,w or b,c or b,w. RH6.2 works well.
Reboot is normal with kernel from RH6.2.
Not rebooting with both new kernels 2.4 from RH7.0 too.
I am having the same problem. We have a bunch of HP Brio's in production as
WWW, DNS and MAIL servers. They all were fine w V6.2 but now will not reboot.
Tried all the various reboot= combos.
Spoke to RH Support and they told me it's a bug.
When can we expect a fix?
RH 8.0 kernel 2.4.18-14 reboots correctly.
Thanks for the update!
