Description of problem:
Unable to install Fedora 12 and running Fedora 12 LiveCD on Netbook Acer Aspire One 751h. Fedora 12 install DVD hangs when "waiting for hardware to initialize ...". Fedora 12 LiveCD hangs when "Starting udev ....". But Fedora 11 only with kernel 2.6.29 install without any problems.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 11 kernel-2.6.30, Fedora 12 kernel-2.6.30 - kernel-2.6.31
Steps to Reproduce:
I am seeing similar behavior when I try to boot the F12 i386 LiveCD on my HP Mini 1030NR netbook. Some additional info,
- I am booting from a USB key drive
- The F11 LiveCD boots successfully
- The Ubuntu 9.10 LiveCD boots successfully
The usually advise in this situation appears to be to change the BIOS settings to disable the floppy drive. There are no such BIOS settings on this machine.
Floppy drive settings not present in this BIOS. This trouble appeared in the kernel more than 2.6.30. I am booting from USB key drive and PXE and Fedora 12 hangs on hardware initialized before starting anaconda. Fedora 11 hangs with kernel-2.6.30 and with kernel-2.6.29 work normal.
boot.iso hangs at "waiting for hardware to initialize..."
I found some very useful information here: http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=234055
I tried adding ssb.blacklist=1 to the kernel parameters when booting the LiveCD. I saw a brief message that, I believe, said that ssb.blacklist=1 was not recognized as a valid parameter, but the kernel successfully booted.
Also, I was able to get the boot.iso to boot by adding the "noprobe" kernel option.
Thanks for help.
Realy it works whith ssb.blacklist = 1 when booting. "backlist ssb" this is need to add to backlist in the file /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf. But if you installed package kmod-wl depending on the install package broadcom-wl wich have this streeng in the file /etc/modprobe.d/broadcom-wl-blacklist.conf.
