Description Orion Poplawski 2007-03-08 18:09:17 UTC
Description of problem:

On old Dell Dimension XPS T700r Pentium III machine kernel consistently hangs
early during boot.  Last few messages:

agpgart: Detected an Intel 400BX Chipset.
agpgart: AGP aperature is 64M @ 0xf8000000
Serial: 8250/16550 driver $Revision: 1.90 $ 4 ports, IRQ sharing enabled
Time: pit clocksource has been installed.

This is fairly new.  System booted fine about a week ago.  Don't see any problem
with a newer dual xeon system.

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

Comment 1 Orion Poplawski 2007-03-12 17:00:43 UTC
Still happens with 2.6.20-1.2982

Comment 2 Will Woods 2007-03-15 19:17:43 UTC
*** Bug 232149 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Comment 3 Yao Zhang 2007-03-24 22:59:50 UTC
With kernel 2.6.20-1.3017.fc7, the last two lines showing on screen when the
system hangs is something like:

Time: pit clocksource has been installed.
Spurious 8259A interrupt: IRQ 7

Comment 4 Yao Zhang 2007-03-27 21:30:45 UTC
Kernel 2.6.20-1.3023.fc7 boots fine now.
