Description of problem:
I am trying to install on a machine with the Intel 440gx motherboard and
the Adaptec 7896N scsi controller. Everything loads and works during
install but once install is done and I go to reboot the machine gets in a
endless loop trying to load the scsi devices. It says something about
sharing IRQ 11 and timing out.
I figure this is related to bug 29555 but they weird thing is I can boot
up and run the installer fine, it just hangs once I reboot after install.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RH 7.2 onto machine with Intel 440gx and Adaptec 7896N
2. Reboot after install.
Actual Results: Endless loop while trying to load scsi devices because of
a timeout problem and an IRQ sharing issue.
Expected Results: It should load everything and start 7.2
Did you install the SMP kernel ?
440GX motherboards really need the smp kernel (that is, if you're lucky)
Just reinstalled choosing the smp kernal from the package list. Worked like a
charm, didn't even need to use the apic command like the workaround for 7.1
