Dell inspiron 1521 cannot boot Fc7 after normal install from DVD
Last modified: 2008-01-11 12:12:15 EST
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The result is not the same, all the time. Sometimes it boots, but it takes a
very long time.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC7
2. First time the machine boot after installmant it fails.
The boot process fails, just after Grub have loaded the kernel. Fc6 works fine.
So my work around is at moment to stay on Fc6.
If needed. I can create extra infomation, if you contact me.
Add "nolapic_timer" to the kernel command line options.
