Problems with latest F10 kernels and Lenovo T61
Last modified: 2015-10-25 21:06:47 EDT
Description of problem:
When I try to boot one of these kernels, my laptop hangs afer loading its keymap. It should instead prompts me for the LUKS passphrase.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I've no problem with kernel-126.96.36.199-101.fc10.x86_64.
Let me know if you need further details / log files.
If you remove the "quiet" option from the kernel line in /etc/grub.conf, can you see any messages before it freezes?
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Thanks for your time.
I removed the 'quiet' option from the kernel line and I can see that the last line is referred to the 'Trackpoint'.
Here's a snip of my dmesg (copied from my last boot):
Synaptics Touchpad, model: 1, fw: 6.2, id: 0x81a0b1, caps: 0xa04793/0x300000
serio: Synaptics pass-through port at isa0060/serio1/input0
input: SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad as /devices/platform/i8042/serio1/input/input5
EXT3-fs: INFO: recovery required on readonly filesystem.
EXT3-fs: write access will be enabled during recovery.
IBM TrackPoint firmware: 0x0e, buttons: 3/3
input: TPPS/2 IBM TrackPoint as /devices/platform/i8042/serio1/serio2/input/input6
Instead, now it hangs exactly after the information about TPPS/2 IBM Trackpoint.
Not sure what the problem was, but I did a fresh install on this laptop and now '188.8.131.52-117.fc10.x86_64' works fine.
I'm starting to think about something that went wrong trying to unlock my LUKS encrypted filesystem, but unfortunately I have not sufficient data to argue about.
Feel free to close this bug: if it will re-happen, I'll try to collect more information.
