Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:49:14 EST
Description of problem:
kernel panic (I think) on bootup. Will attach picture from my digicam.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always. Tried booting five times.
Steps to Reproduce:
This is on a Macbook Pro with a Core Duo (not Core2; it's 1st generation Macbook

Just reproduced the same on a MacBook with core-2-duo.
Tried this on 2936 and 2911 with same result. Last kernel that I have that
appears to work is 2.6.20-1-2898.2.3.fc7
Unable to get a trace other than taking a photo, and David's trace is identical
This happens immediately after
PCI: Using MMCONFIG
Setting up standard PCI resources
I've tried pci=nommconf incase that's the issue and various combinations of pci=
but I'm still unable to boot
I can confirm this on my Macbook Pro first generation as well.
Still happening with .2962...
compiling without CONFIG_DEBUG_MUTEXES "solves" the problem. The problem is also
present on linus git tree.
I tried to us netconsole to get a better trace, but the kernel crashes before
the netconsole is up :-(
I want to help, but I think that I will need some information on how to debug this.

Fixed on 2985
davidz, can you confirm that this problem is fixed in kernel .2985 and later?
Yeah, latest Rawhide boots. Thanks. Closing this bug.
