Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 433140
F9 alpha DVD does not start on Intel T2310 CPU
Last modified: 2008-05-21 11:10:16 EDT
Description of problem:
The x86_64 installer does not start on a T2310 laptop, the vmlinuz images are
reported to be corrupt. Prepending with /boot or similar does not help. Using
the i386 DVD makes the install start.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Try to boot from F9 alpha x86_64 DVD
Probably not related at all, but maybe it gives a hint: the install from the
i386 DVD required nohz=off to make it past /sbin/loader.
The laptop is a Toshiba L40-16d.
They boot fine on hardware I've got... does the DVD boot on another drive? It
could just be a bad burn
I checked the DVD and it was OK. But I used subsequent pxeboot images from
rawhide and managed to get a bit farther, so maybe the issue is gone.
Should we keep this in needinfo until F9 beta is released and I provide some
feedback again? Or if you tell me to test some interim ISO I'll gladly do so.
BTW I didn't change NEEDINFO to NEW, changing it back.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Couldn't reproduce with GA.
