Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 441161
126.96.36.199-64 won't boot; 188.8.131.52-50 will

Description of problem:
184.108.40.206-64 won't boot; 220.127.116.11-50 will.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I've attached my smolt profile (which wouldn't send for some reason). Let me
know if I can provide more information.

Could you try a later kernel?
Do you have any wireless hardware? I don't see any in your smolt profile.
This *may* be the same issue - https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=444694
Sorry for taking so long to get back on this one. I have no wireless hardware
and all recent builds (18.104.22.168-50 is the latest that works for me) fail to
boot. What can I do to help track this down?
You may wish to go into more detail about "fail to boot" -- what is the last
thing you see on the monitor?
When I get home tonight, I will tell you :)
It turns out that the kernels newer than 22.214.171.124-50 actually don't allow X to
start on my system. If I try to boot without rhgb, I can get as far as runlevel
3. startx after that locks up my system -- no response to keyboard input, no
keyboard LEDs toggling, requires hard power cycling it -- which I presume is the
same as what's happening when rhgb starts. None of this occurs with 126.96.36.199-50.
I'll attach my xorg.conf and Xorg.0.log which has some stuff in it about memory

Try adding this to the kernel boot options in /etc/grub.conf:
Does pci=rom work?
Sorry, I didn't get a chance to try it until just now. Yes, pci=rom allows me
to get X started with 188.8.131.52-92.fc8. Thanks!
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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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:
I'm no longer running Fedora 8 so let's close this.
