Description Brian Cottingham 2007-06-05 14:48:26 UTC
Description of problem:
On my Dell Inspiron e1405, when I try to boot to the LiveCD (either KDE or 
Gnome), the LiveCD gets to the "uncompressing kernel" stage, then hangs. The 
keyboard no longer affects the system (as evidenced by the fact that the Number 
Lock light won't change state). This can only be resolved by using the boot 
options "noapic nolapic".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Boot to the LiveCD on my computer (don't know what hardware components would 
cause replication
Actual results:
Computer freezes, doesn't boot

Expected results:
Proper boot

I can now confirm that Fedora boots properly with only the "nolapic" boot flag. 
The "noapic" flag is not required.
