Description of problem:
After successfully installing RH7.2 on a vaio notebook the system does not
boot any more. the problem occurs after the first print statements of the
rc.sysinit script. the attempt to find the error using echo statements in
the rc.sysinit script was not successful.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install on a sony-vaio pcg-fx301 (expert, laptop)
2. boot after successfull installation
3. get the kernel panic
Actual Results: kernel panic - keyboard not working
Expected Results: normal boot - starting init scripts
I tried to disable apm using apm=off in lilo.conf with no success.
after installing a patched kernel 2.4.10 (ext3 support added), which was
compiled on a RH 7.1 system everything is working OK.
no more problems after the kernel update to 2.4.9-7
For what it's worth, I also get panics on a VAIO fx210.
