When it freezes, do you see anything on tty3 or tty4 that could indicate a failure?

Comment 2 dominique 2007-06-05 04:54:59 UTC
when anaconda freeze I can't do nothing.
My loptop is freeze and I shut-down and re-start it

Comment 3 Dave Jones 2007-06-05 21:29:52 UTC
can you try booting with nohz=off ? and see if that helps.
clocksource=acpi_pm may also be interesting.

Comment 4 dominique 2007-06-06 04:30:04 UTC
thank for your help
I try those two options but the results are the same:
my laptop freeze at checking for depedencies...
I dont konw why... 
I have installed FC5 and FC6 without problems...
May be the future F8 resolv that...

Comment 5 dominique 2007-06-07 05:19:53 UTC
I am under F7!!!!
I adds just "linux acpi=off" at the begin of installation...
thank for your help

Comment 6 Tim Püschel 2007-06-16 12:08:42 UTC
I had the same problem and installed with acpi=off.

Further investigation showed that as long as I boot with "acpi=off" there are no

If I boot without "acpi=off" the system freezes if there is high cpu utilization
for a while (usually a few minutes). If I try to reboot again directly the
kernel panics during boot. If I wait a while to let the system cool down a bit
it boots and works without problems as long as I don't let it run at full
frequency and full cpu utilization for to long. 

The problem exists with both kernel-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7 and
kernel-2.6.21-1.3228.fc7. I've had no such problems with Fedora Core 6 or earlier.

My system is

Comment 7 Tim Püschel 2007-06-16 12:50:59 UTC
When booting with a "hot" system and without "acpi=off" either the following
"BUG: scheduling while atomic: kacpid/0x000000d8/47" 
or a large screen with errors, call traces, etc appears.
Among others it contains the following lines (stuff left out wherever there's ...):
Process kacpid (pid:47, ti=f7c5400, task=f7c7b290 task.fi=f7c55000)
Stack: ...
Call Trace:

Created attachment 157201 [details]
dsdt.hex with-out errors

Comment 9 dominique 2007-06-16 19:31:35 UTC
I have the same problems...when I am with acpi=on my laptop freeze when the
cpu-temp is 65°... I think it is a problem with dsdt table... I have compiled a
new dsdt table without errors but I don't know how to integrate this file in a
new kernel

Comment 10 dominique 2007-06-19 17:39:26 UTC
Ihave a temporary solution... (thank' google...)

when I do:
[root@88-138-11-104 ~]# cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THRM/trip_points
 I have:
critical (S5):           100 C
passive:                 92 C: tc1=2 tc2=3 tsp=100 devices=0xc18eb57c
active[0]:               73 C: devices=0xf7d04590
active[1]:               66 C: devices=0xf7d04680

then I do:
echo 100:0:92:73:73 > /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THRM/trip_points

and I have:
critical (S5):           100 C
passive:                 92 C: tc1=2 tc2=3 tsp=100 devices=0xc18eb57c
active[0]:               73 C: devices=0xf7d04590
active[1]:               73 C: devices=0xf7d04680

and now no freeze (my cpu-temp up to 71° but no more)

I can do this code every time I start my laptop  (I think it is possible to
automated this solution for starting computer)

Excuse my english...

I'm reviewing this bug as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt to
isolate current bugs in the fedora kernel.


This bug appears resolved so I am closing it. If I have erred please forgive me,
