kernel-2.6.17-1.2157_FC5 crashes too
Comment 4 Dave Jones 2006-10-16 13:37:30 EDT
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.

Kernel 2.6.18-1.2200.fc5 crashes too when the webcam is taken off.
Comment 7 Dave Jones 2006-10-21 22:56:58 EDT
hmm, it does this even if the camera isn't in use by any application ?
I see one area of suspicious code in the driver, but that should only be
triggered if something was trying to capture from the device at the time.
Comment 8 Jani Frilander 2006-10-26 15:00:46 EDT
boot 2.6.18-1.2200.fc5 -> plug the webcam in -> wait 5 seconds ( not even starting
the webcam app) -> plug out -> hang

So it crashes when not used.

Updated my desktop hardware to Asus m2npv-mx mobo and Athlon 64 x2 +3800 cpu.
Intalled fc6 x86_64 version and updated to kernel 2.6.18-1.2849.fc6.
Crashing continues. However with this kernel the system stays up for about 50%
of times.
Comment 11 Dan Carpenter 2006-11-21 00:07:54 EST
This was reported to bugzilla.kernel.org as well.  Patch available.  :)

Kernel 2.6.19-1.2895.fc6 don't crash anymore. Should we close this bug?
