Comment 1 Dave Jones 2006-10-17 00:18:17 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.

Same thing applies to IBM600E on Fedora Core 6 FC6

Comment 3 Brent R Brian 2007-02-03 14:34:59 UTC
Cardbus needs IRQ 14, but with ACPI on, it is not available.

I used to use a MASK at boot to control this, but it does not seem to work.

As of 2.6.19-1 (FC6) it is still this way, with ACPI on, no cardbus.

Let me know what is needed.

Comment 4 Brent R Brian 2007-12-15 01:17:32 UTC
Update to F7 fixed the problem.
