Fedora 10 Preview: kernel throw assert during boot
Last modified: 2008-11-10 15:27:21 EST
Description of problem:
I downloaded Fedora 10 Preview release to install and test it on my system. I used the netinst CD image. The installation went fine. But the kernel don't boot.
After grub loaded the kernel I see for a short time the message:
ACPI: Invalid PBLK length 
Then on the lower left side some blue progress bar is seen, shortly after this the assertion message:
plymouthd: ply-boot-splash.c: 283: ply_boot_splash_root_mounted: Assertion `sp != ((void *)0)' failed.
appears and the system hangs.
ASUS P4PE mainboard (i845PE)
Pentium 4 2400 MHz
AGP Radeon 9200/9250 video card
3ware Escalade 7500-LP for storage
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 10 Preview (Fedora-10-Preview-i386-netinst.iso)
Every time I boot. I also tried to boot:
- without rhgb option
- without rhgb and with nomodeset option
- with rhgb and with nomodeset option
The result is always the same. Are there any other options I can try? I searched through the Fedora wiki but rhgb and nomodeset were the only related options I found so far.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 10
2. Boot it
Kernel throw an assertion during boot sequence
Kernel shall boot normally
Mainboard: ASUS P4PE
CPU: Pentium 4, 2.4 GHz
