Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 238172
Test 4 live cd hangs after pci_hotplug
Last modified: 2008-08-11 12:05:00 EDT
Description of problem:
After booting the live cd hangs after displaying message related to pci_hotplug
"pci_hotplug: PCI Hotplug version Core 0.5"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Test4 Live CD
Steps to Reproduce:
May be this is related to my CD/DVD drive problem (Bug ID: 236470), which causes
"lost interrupts". The boot process always hangs after the pci_hotplug message.

I can confirm this on a new Everex Stepnote XT 5300 laptop, dual-core Athlon
64 X2, Nvidia chipset. I'm writing this from the Fedora Core 8 liveCD, which
works fine. There is probably a kernel command-line option to disable the PCI
Hotplug code, which would be an acceptable workaround.
A fix (9e5858244926f4fddf8ba38a6b4fa3fe68e93836) was just merged upstream that
may take care of this problem.
If it shows up in an iso image, I'll give it a try and report the results. The
Fedora-9 torrents are all from February 5th; I assume I need to wait for new
builds to show up.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Is this bug still present in Fedora 9 final?
The information we've requested above is required in order
to review this problem report further and diagnose or fix the
issue if it is still present. Since it has been thirty days or
more since we first requested additional information, we're assuming
the problem is either no longer present in the current Fedora release, or
that there is no longer any interest in tracking the problem.
Setting status to "CLOSED INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you still
experience this problem after updating to our latest Fedora
release and can provide the information previously requested,
please feel free to reopen the bug report.
Thank you in advance.
