Description of problem:

Recent 2.6.29 fc10 kernels from koji fail to boot on one of my machines with (quiet turned off):

Probing EDD (edd=off) to disable... ok

  crc error

   --  System halted

And that is it.

Adding edd=off simply removes the first line.

2.6.29-0.64.rc8.git4.fc10.i686 works, but 2.6.29-3.fc10 and 2.6.29-10.fc10 don't.

Comment 1 Chuck Ebbert 2009-04-01 11:33:55 EDT
Looks like the initrd or the kernel image is corrupted. Does uninstalling and reinstalling the kernel fix it? Does rpm --verify <kernel-pkgname> show any problems? Does removing 'quiet' from the boot options show any additional information?
Comment 2 Orion Poplawski 2009-04-01 16:53:45 EDT
It has happened with two 2.6.29 kernels now -3 and -10.

quiet is off.  I think this is before it even gets to the initrd.

rpm --verify does show errors:

# rpm --verify kernel-2.6.29-10.fc10.i686
..5.....    /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.29-10.fc10.i686
..5.....    /lib/modules/2.6.29-10.fc10.i686/kernel/drivers/atm/horizon.ko
..5.....    /lib/modules/2.6.29-10.fc10.i686/kernel/drivers/char/tpm/tpm_bios.ko
..5.....    /lib/modules/2.6.29-10.fc10.i686/kernel/drivers/infiniband/hw/mthca/ib_mthca.ko
..5.....    /lib/modules/2.6.29-10.fc10.i686/kernel/drivers/input/touchscreen/htcpen.ko
..5.....    /lib/modules/2.6.29-10.fc10.i686/kernel/drivers/isdn/hisax/hisax.ko

Re-installed, no checksum errors:

# rpm --verify kernel-2.6.29-10.fc10.i686
.......T    /lib/modules/2.6.29-10.fc10.i686/modules.alias.bin
.......T    /lib/modules/2.6.29-10.fc10.i686/modules.dep.bin
.......T    /lib/modules/2.6.29-10.fc10.i686/modules.symbols.bin

Rebooted fine.

Maybe hardware troubles though memtest86+ and smartctl show everything as clean.
