Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 459437
Hang at end of boot after update.
Last modified: 2009-07-14 10:20:43 EDT
Description of problem:
I've just updated from kernel 126.96.36.199-97.fc9.i686 to 188.8.131.52-108.fc9.i686 and now when I boot, when X should load the system hangs: I get a blank screen and the keyboard is unresponsive.
(Note that I have rhgb turned off so I'm expecting X to load at the end of the boot sequence and prompt for login credentials).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Works OK with kernel 184.108.40.206-97.fc9.i686
Fails with 220.127.116.11-108.fc9.i686
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot system normally.
System hang: blank screen, keyboard unresponsive.
List of system users allowing me to select my name and type my password.
System is an Intel D845GERG2 board, I'm using the on-board video controller.
Is this fixed in 18.104.22.168-79.fc9? (Erase the kernel that won't work before doing an update.)
Thanks for the prompt Chuck.
I've just tested it and yes, this is fixed by 22.214.171.124-79.fc9.
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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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.
