Description Angelo Borsotti 2008-04-07 19:50:40 UTC
Description of problem:

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. switch on the computer
2. wait
Actual results:

Grub bootstraps Fedora. A console window appears, in which the notification
of the starting of some components appears.
After that, the following is displayed:

SIOCSIFFLAGS: operations not supported
./ifup-wireless line 60:
  1945 Segmentation fault

Then the computer enters a state in which NOTHING can be done, except
power it off. There is no way to terminate the startup sequence and
bring up Fedora. P.S. Ubuntu boots successfully.

Expected results:

Are the keyboard LEDs flashing at this point?

Comment 2 John W. Linville 2008-04-17 15:09:27 UTC
What kernel are you using?  What is your wireless hardware?

Comment 3 Angelo Borsotti 2008-04-17 22:41:53 UTC
The keyboard LEDs are not flashing.
The kernel is the one of Fedora 8.
The wireless hardware is a PCI Atgheros board, and it works properly with Ubuntu.

Comment 4 John W. Linville 2008-04-18 12:22:31 UTC
Could you be a bit more specific about which kernel you are using?  There are 
dozens of Fedora 8 kernels.  Please post the output of 'uname -r'...thanks!
