Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 210350
no boot with cpqarray
Last modified: 2007-11-16 20:14:54 EST
Description of problem:
When booting a server (old Compaq DL 360) with kernel-2.6.9-42.0.x.EL, then it
stops during initialization of cpqarray driver. For details see the attachment.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot kernel 2.6.9-42.0.x
unlimited wait during cpqarray initialization
kernel-2.6.9-34 boots OK and there is a difference in the interrupt assigning
line "ACPI: PCI interrupt ..." between 2.6.9-34 and 2.6.9-42
relevant part of dmesg:
NET: Registered protocol family 17
ACPI: (supports S0 S4 S5)
ACPI wakeup devices:
Freeing unused kernel memory: 144k freed
SCSI subsystem initialized
Compaq SMART2 Driver (v 2.6.0)
cpqarray: Device 0x10 has been found at bus 0 dev 1 func 0
ACPI: PCI interrupt 0000:00:01.0[A] -> GSI 11 (level, low) -> IRQ 11

adding "noapic" to the kernel boot parameters makes the machine to boot
So this only affects the 'UP' kernel?
I will try to do some up/smp boots tomorrow.
I am sorry, but it is quite important machine. It will be possible to do the
reboots during this weekend, I am sure.
The results are here:
- 2.6.9-42.0.8smp - without noapic => boots OK
- 2.6.9-42.0.10 - without noapic => boots OK
I did not have any older kernel version, e.g. 2.6.9-42.0.2
OK. Closing BZ as NOTABUG then.
Thank you for checking the later releases.
