Installation hangs when loading HPT366 driver
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:36 EDT
Description of problem:
Installation of F8t1 hangs - no keyboard or mouse -immediately in the beginning,
when I see a box "Loading pata hpt-366 driver". This happens with graphic and
with text installs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put F8t1 dvd in station and boot
Hangs. Machine freezes.
Installation should begin.
I use Abit PB6, with SMP and two 400 MHz Celerons and 640 MB RAM, with HPT 366
connectted to two ATA disks. Hanging is so early, that I think installation has
no kernel console or I don't know how to swich to it, so I see no error messages.
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?
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.
Closing per previous comment. If you can provide the requested information,
please feel free to re-open this bug.
