Installer hangs during boot after 'Disabling IRQ 18'
Last modified: 2009-07-14 11:49:08 EDT
Description of problem: While installing FC9 on a system, for troubleshooting
purposes I removed all disk drives from the motherboard, connecting them only
through PCI cards. When I did this the installer boot process would get to
'Disabling IRQ 18' and then hang forever. It did this every time I tried that
hardware configuration; moving the drives back to the mobo interfaces fixed the
Motherboard: Asus K8N-E Deluxe
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
How long did you wait?
On Mac Pro using rEFIt to boot text acpi=off, the system stayed at the line
Disabling IRQ #18 for several minutes, then displayed the "Choose a Language"
panel, but the mouse and keyboard were dead (no caps lock or mouse LED's).
I can boot Knoppix 5.3.1 (32-bit) with graphics on the same hardware.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '9'.
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 9'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 9 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:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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.
