Comment 1 Gawain Lynch 2006-09-10 18:38:02 EDT
Current rawhide (20060910) fixes this.

Comment 2 Gawain Lynch 2006-09-12 18:08:32 EDT
Problem is back in rawhide 20060912.  

Several attempts using rawhide from in between days were all successful.
Comment 3 Gawain Lynch 2006-09-14 03:22:43 EDT
While playing around I noticed on one of the tty's before it locked up that
device 0000:00:1f.2 "failed with error -12"

Comment 4 Gawain Lynch 2006-09-21 01:44:43 EDT
Changed summary and component.

Exact error on tty4 is:

  ahci 0000:00:1f.2 version 2.0
  ahci: probe of 0000:00:1f.2 failed with error -12

Kernel 2.6.17-1.2647.fc6 boots fine.
Comment 5 Gawain Lynch 2006-09-21 01:46:59 EDT
Do'h!  Might help if I reassign to the right people.
Comment 6 Jeremy Katz 2006-09-21 08:45:34 EDT
The problem is that the kernel is saying that the PCI id is supported by both
ahci and ata_piix so it's a tossup as to which gets loaded by anaconda -- the
hang then shouldn't occur.

This seems to be happening with a lot more frequency this time around... I'm
wondering what's changed in sata land to be tickling this more
Comment 7 Carl Henrik Lunde 2006-09-24 20:09:04 EDT
I have the same problem on my Dell Precision M20.  Same message on tty4, and my
lspci-output is the same.  FC6 Test 3.
Comment 8 Gawain Lynch 2006-09-24 20:29:06 EDT
Being that this is not an uncommon chipset I'm adding it to FC6KernelBlocker.

/me wants FC6 goodness too.
Comment 9 Carl Henrik Lunde 2006-09-25 06:41:55 EDT
This may have been fixed by bug #195779 - however I'm not sure how to verify
that it works now.
Comment 10 Gawain Lynch 2006-09-27 20:42:13 EDT
Carl is correct, the fix for bug #195779 seems to coincide with this working for
me again.
