Description of problem:
When starting the system using kernel-2.6.20-1.3017.fc7 the system stalls with the loading ata_generic.ko. This happened with the 3003 kernel as well.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Turn on your computer.
2.When you get to the grub selection choose the kernel-2.6.20-1.3017.fc7 option.
3.watch until you get the error.
The start up stopped at the loading ata_generic.ko message.
The system should have taken me to the gdm login screen.
I don't have any outpout, since I cant copy/paste the boot up process.
ata_generic should only be loaded as a last resort if no other driver matches
your hardware. Can you attach the output of lspci -n please ?
This bug is now no longer what is happening, I have posted another report (the
problems seem slightly different to me). I guess this can be closed. Just to
clarify the ata_generic.ko error does not seem to be coming up anymore.
