Description Kai Engert (:kaie) 2007-01-25 08:11:26 EST
Description of problem:
"yum update" on my Centrino notebook installed kernel-2.6.19-1.2895.fc6
In the middle of the boot process, the system switches to runlevel 6 and reboots.
The previous kernel-2.6.18-1.2869.fc6 boots fine.
My inittab says:
I tried to use parameter "3" on the kernel boot line, but that didn't have an

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot
2. automatic reboot
3. goto 1

Additional info:
This is the exact location where the system switches to runlevel 6:

starting NFS statd
starting RPC idmapd
Init -> switching to runlevel 6
shutdown RPC idmapd
shutdown NFS statd

Unfortunately this notebook does NOT have a serial port, so I can not provide a
full log.

Do you have any idea what I could try to find out what triggers the automatic
reboot? Thanks.
Comment 2 Kai Engert (:kaie) 2007-02-14 16:09:17 EST
According to the kernel changelog this bug got fixed.

And indeed, I confirm the bug is fixed for me with release 2.6.19-1.2911.fc6
