Description Virgil Andronache 2007-04-20 16:02:49 EDT
Description of problem: About half the time when booting the fc7 kernels, the
booting process freezes after the following lines:

ACPI: bus type PCI registered
PCI: Using config type 1
ACPI: Interpreter enabled
ACPI: (supports S0 S3 S4 S5)
ACPI: Using PIC for interrupt routine
ACPI: PCI Root bridge [PCI0] (0000:00)
* - see Additional info
PCI: Probing PCI hardware (bus 00)
Boot video device is 0000:00:05.0

My computer is a Compaq V6171CL, with a Turion 64 X2 Mobile Technology TL-50
stepping 02 processor, 1 GB RAM, nVidia Corporation Geforce 6150 video card and
I have installed the x86_64 version of fc7 (devel).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Previous kernels as well

How reproducible:  Boot up fc7 kernel

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:  Freeze in start-up

Expected results:  Normal start-up

Additional info: The problem does not occur with stock kernels compiled on the
machine.  When booting kernel, the output at the starred place above
includes the following two lines:

ACPI: Assume root bridge [\_SB_.PCI0] bus is 0
PM: Adding info for No Bus: pci0000:00

Pressing the power switch should make it continue, at least when it's not on
battery... Closing as dup of later bug since that one has more information.
