Description Tim Burke 2007-06-01 16:36:06 EDT
(this may end up needing multiple bugzillas, but....)

Jeff Burke notes that there's a lot more boot failure messages when running the
realtime kernel. He did an apples-to-apples comparison of vanilla 2.6.21 and the
same with the realtime patches applied.

For example, here's what he sees in dmesg when booting vanilla
kernel-rt-2.6.21-20.el5rtvanilla.i686
 - i386 puma1.lab.boston.redhat.com Pass
******** Potential Issues dmesg ********
rtc_cmos: probe of 00:04 failed with error -16

kernel-rt-2.6.21-20.el5rtvanilla.i686
 - i386 ibm-morrison.lab.boston.redhat.com Pass
******** Potential Issues dmesg ********

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In contrast, here's what he sees w/ RHEL-RT:

kernel-rt-2.6.21-20.el5rt.i686
 - i386 ibm-taroko.rhts.boston.redhat.com Aborted - Fail

*** Bug 240015 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 2 Luis Claudio R. Goncalves 2007-08-13 08:14:59 EDT
Is this a valid bug nowadays?
Comment 3 Jeff Burke 2007-08-13 16:00:36 EDT
Luis,
  We need to filter as much of this as possible. It will ony result in
uneeded/unwanted support calls.

Comment 4 Alan Cox 2007-08-13 20:02:37 EDT
Jeff - does it occur with current kernels is I think what was meant
Comment 5 Alan Cox 2007-09-10 11:25:03 EDT
Closing due to lack of response
