Since 2.6.24-0.43.rc3.git1.fc9 Via Epia 2 hangs during boot
Last modified: 2007-12-04 02:38:19 EST
Description of problem:
Since 2.6.24-0.43.rc3.git1.fc9 my via thin client no longer boots. Boot hangs at
apparently random places, depending on whether I use initrd on not, or whether
console is serial or vt, etc. Release 2.6.24-0.42.rc3.git1.fc9 Worked just fine.
I tried booting 2.6.24-0.43.rc3.git1.fc9 and later kernels, each several times,
and all of attempts resulted in a hung.
Similarly all of numerous attempts to boot 2.6.24-0.42.rc3.git1.fc9 and earlier
resulted in a success.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Created attachment 274211 [details]
dmesg from unsuccessull boot (the end marks the place where it hung)
Created attachment 274221 [details]
dmesg from successfull boot
Created attachment 274251 [details]
Diff between the packages
I just don't get it, the changes are so small.
Might it be that it has something to do that the machine has a flash device (on
ATA) and the mtd blkdev change?
Try kernel-2.6.24-0.66.rc3.git7.fc9. You might have hit bug 407281 here. See
if the specified kernel boots for you. It was built with a fixed GCC
Thanks Josh, the new kernel boots just fine.
