Description of problem:
During boot, the system hangs after displaying:
It never displays the messages:
"<MC> Compression is enabled"
"<MC> Compression is disabled"
which may limit where in mxt_scan_bios it's hanging (assuming I'm looking
at current souce).
This was after a seemingly sucessful install using all the default options.
The computer is a Compaq presario 2286. 128MB RAM
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install roswell
3. Remind myself this is Beta software. :-)
Expected Results: World peace
I would be really surprised if your system has MXT; could you try adding
"nomxt" to the lilo/grub commandline ?
No surprise here, the machine definately does not have MXT.
I added "nomxt" to the end of the "kernel..." line using the edit function of
grub, with the same results. Is that how I should specify nomxt to the kernel?
For grins, I also tried adding it to the other two lines in grub with the same
results. It still hangs in the same place.
I have a similar problem with the full 7.2 pro Box set (non Alpha Beta)
I am running a Presario 2266 with an up-to-date bios for that system but the
BIOS does not have XMT scan. The system worked great under 5.2 box set.
Installation shows successful as it recognizes all my hardware accurately but
when re-booting it locks up in the same place.
Email me firstname.lastname@example.org
email@example.com: does "nomxt" on the grub kernel line help ?
I put nomxt at the end and it still locks up I also added the debug at the end
of the kernel then no mxt at the end with but no change. I installed
everything with an everything install so all options would be open.
MXT is resolved in errata (we removed it)
2266 is a saga and duping it to said saga
