Description Lilian Pfister 2008-02-18 15:32:14 UTC
Description of problem:
I can't boot fedora when running on AC power.
Here is the complete booting log before the system hangs :
Booting 'Fedora ('

  Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
kernel /boot/vmlinuz- ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
   [Linux-bzImage, setup=0x2c00, size=0x1e13e0]
initrd /boot/initrd-
   [Linux-initrd @ 0x37d0b000, 0x2e4789bytes]

Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel.
ACPI: EC: acpi_ec_wait timeout, status = 0, expect_event = 1
ACPI: EC: read timeout, command = 128
There the system freezes completely and the only way to power it off is to hard 
stop it.
Launching the system without being plugged on AC power works fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Not sure

How reproducible:
Booting when plugged on AC power.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Plug in AC power cable.
2.Power on the system
Actual results:
The system freezes when booting the kernel.

Expected results:
The system shouldn't freeze at all.

Booting with kernel and older worked fine ( 
kernel still works fine).

Comment 2 Lilian Pfister 2008-11-17 21:44:13 UTC
Bug corrected with 2.6.25 and newer kernels, so I'm closing it.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '8'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2009-01-09 06:00:44 UTC
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
