Description Claus Møller Madsen 2007-08-18 06:07:20 UTC
Description of problem:

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

How reproducible:
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.
Actual results:
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.  

Additional info:
If needed. I can create extra infomation, if you contact me.

Add "nolapic_timer" to the kernel command line options.

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


I am CC'ing myself to this bug and will try and assist you in resolving it if I can.

There hasn't been much activity on this bug for a while. Could you tell me if
you are still having problems with the latest kernel or have tested with the
parameter Chuck recommended?

If the problem no longer exists then please close this bug or I'll do so in a
few days if there is no additional information lodged.

Comment 3 Christopher Brown 2008-01-11 17:12:15 UTC
