Description Nathan Kohagen 2009-09-05 17:39:59 UTC
About a week ago I started receiving the following message:
"Uhhuh. NMI received for unknown reason b0 on CPU 0."

Power cycling the box was the only way to get out of it.

At first I thought it was hardware problem, but memtest86 returned no errors.

Every time this happened the following message was logged:
"kernel: end_request: I/O error, dev fd0, sector 0"

I grep'ed /var/log/* for the same time stamp of the above message and found matches in pm-suspend.log:

Sat Sep  5 03:35:14 PDT 2009: performing hibernate

The log says the disks are not hibernating correctly.

I updated Gnome Power Manager a day or two before I saw the first NMI message. 

It would be good to get to the root cause, but at this point a work around would be great - selecting "never" in Gnome Power Manager does not fix this. 

Which kernel boot parameters do set in grub to completely disable hibernate?

This is happening with kernel

Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2010-04-28 10:11:46 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '11'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2010-06-28 14:29:53 UTC
Fedora 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
