ls pci -v from up bootup
is the boot completely dead or can you still log in ?
I can login but things are really hosed. Doing "ifconfig" hangs. The system is
suppose to come up with gdm for login ... gdm is started but doesn't work.
I got the dmesg-smp.txt after logging in.
Everything seems to depend on the network interface.
I downloaded the 2.4.7-0.3 kernel and will give that a try next.
if you can pull of doing a "dmesg | ksymoops" after the crash that would be
VERY helpful in finding the actual culprit.
OK, 2.4.7-0.3 works -- the problem did not occur.
I suggest closed -> fixed in rawhide
your wish is my command
