x86_64 2.6.19 series kernel hang when booting on Xeon 5110
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:59 EST
Description of problem:
HP DL360-G5 server with 1 xeon 5115 CPU and 2GB RAM.
Installs and runs 2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 from DVD quite happily
Snag is when you update. It hangs during boot.
Booting in runlevel 3 a message flashes up just before it hangs.
I think this reads :-
do_IRQ 0.177 No irq handler for vector.
With a runlevel 3 boot and most rc services disabled you can get as far
as the screen clearing and displaying the login prompt.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Problem affects :-
far too easily
Steps to Reproduce:
2. Yum Update, or wget and rpm -i later kernel
Workaround is posted in bug 225399.
