Description Mikko Rauhala 2008-02-25 16:44:59 EST
Description of problem:
Kernel panics with firewire. With installation from dvd kernel panics when
firewire modules are loaded. If firewire is disabled from bios installation
continues normally. This problem actually started already on fedora 7 after
kernel update to 2.6.23. Even with original 2.6.21 kernel firewire did not work
but, kernel did not panic either. Fedora cores from 3 to 6 worked flawlessly on
this exact same harware.

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

How reproducible:
every time on this harware

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot with fedora 8 installation dvd and wait for firewire module load 

Actual results:
kernel panic

Expected results:

can you try out the 2.6.24 update, and if it still has the problem, can you
capture the panic messages ? (even a digital camera picture attachment would be

I haven't tried kernel 2.6.24 yet. Is there a rpm or should i compile vanilla

Kernel panic with Fedora 8 installation dvd was a little bit different so that
last thing that happened was changing of all the characters on the screen to
something else, so that it was unreadable.

Just quick note to let you know that i compiled the old ieee1394 modules for
kernel- and everything seems to work now ok. I use external
disks, haven't tried with camera yet.

This is actually a dupe.

Indeed, Asus A7N8X-E apparently uses the nForce2 southbridge as FireWire controller.
