Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 441382
Fedora does not start up
Last modified: 2008-08-19 14:43:49 EDT
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. switch on the computer
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.
Are the keyboard LEDs flashing at this point?
What kernel are you using? What is your wireless hardware?
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.
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!
Closed due to lack of response...
