Same problem.
this kernel need acpi=off option to boot. without this option the system freeze
when audit is inizialized, without any other output.

My hardware:
Dell Inspiron 640M
Intel Core2Duo (t5600)
vga intel gma950

ram is tested with memtest and is ok.

I've got the same prob;em but on fedora 8 64bit.

i've detailed my problem in here
(http://forums.fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?t=173700).

In summary i can SOMETIMES boot without acpi=off || irqpoll, sometimes the NIC
doesn't work. I am pretty sure that my NIC isn't busted either becaused if i
boot into vista straight after to check it automatically logs onto the net.



My exact hardware specs are;

Samsung SpinPoint T 500GB SATA-II 16MB Cache - OEM (HD501LJ
Samsung SpinPoint T 320GB SATA-II 16MB Cache - OEM (HD321KJ)
Corsair HX 520W ATX2.2 Modular SLI Compliant PSU (CMPSU-520HXUK)
Corsair 4GB DDR2 XMS2 PC2-6400C5 TwinX (2x2GB)
Intel Core 2 Quad Pro Q6600 "Energy Efficient SLACR 95W Edition" 2.40GHz
(1066FSB) - Retail
EVGA GeForce 8800 GTS "Crysis Edition" 512MB GDDR3 HDTV/Dual DVI (PCI-Express) -
Retail (512-P3-E841-AE-CrysisUK)
Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme CPU Cooler (Socket AM2/LGA775)
Samsung SH-S203NRSMN 20x DVD±RW SATA Dual Layer Lightscribe ReWriter
(Beige/Black/Silver) - Retail
Abit IP35 (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard
Antec Solo Quiet Mini Tower Case - No PSU
Dell 22 inch Widescreen Flat Panel Display with built-in Webcam (SP2208WFP)
Auzentech X-Plosion DTS Connect 7.1 Sound Card – Retail 


Just for reference, the same thing happens in ubuntu but if i boot with acpi=off
and irqpoll the sound card is always detected unlike fedora where it's detected
only somtimes.  I hope this gets fixed before fedora 9.

Kernel no; 2.6.23.15-137.fc8.  I done a full system update about a day ago.


thanks for your time.

Is this bug still present in Fedora 8 or Fedora 9 with latest kernel upgrades?
Comment 5 Maxime CARRON 2008-07-27 05:44:03 EDT
Works well on latest f8 and f9 kernel.
I can't test on f7 anymore.
