Description Yil-Kyu Kang 2001-07-12 12:04:19 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686; en-US; rv:0.9)

Description of problem:
A Qlogic 2xxx series card, in this case a qlogic 2100, will install
perfectly when placed in the 64-bit slot but will fail when the card is
placed in the 32-bit slot. It will lock up at loading qla2x00 module. I do
have the card in case anyone would like to test it. I have attempted to
install using "expert noprobe" and "options=verbose". Both times the
install locked up when loading the module and I was not able to switch to
any of the other virtual consoles. 

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.place card in 32bit slot. 
2.start standard install

I'm having the exact same problem with 2.4.6-2 and a 64bit QLogic 2200; hard
hang on loading the module.  No oops, but machine is dead, no VC's, no
<alt><SysRq>, etc.

Also seen in RH 7.2 Beta 3.  Bugzilla #50703.
Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2001-08-03 07:53:04 EDT
This is believed to be a Intel firmware issue
Comment 4 Wendy Hung 2002-04-19 13:55:27 EDT
Fixed in 2.4.9-21 kernel errata.
