This is a Call Trace from the /var/log/messages
Description of problem:
After installation of Fedora 13, upon first start-up. The computer freezes/locks ("panic mode"). After investigation I realise it is related to "ip6tables".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The computer will not start.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Computer.
During start-up the computer lock requiring a hard reboot.
The computer should start up normally and go to the graphical log in.
From interactive mode, stopping the ip6tables service from running, allows the computer to start-up.
From irc #freenode #fedora i was told of two steps to get my computer to start-up properly.
Step 1) In /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf - a pre-existing file:
to the file
Step 2) In /etc/modprob.d/disable-ipv6.conf - a new file
- addthe line
install ipv6 /bin/true
These two steps allow my computer to start up.
From /var/log/messages I have a attached a snippet.
Do you have problems with IPv6 in general or with ip6tables? ip6tables is the firewall service for IPv6.
According to the attached /var/log/messages, this is a IPv6 kernel problem.
Reassigning to kernel.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '13'.
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 13'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 13 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:
Fedora 13 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2011-06-25. Fedora 13 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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.
