Description Bojan Smojver 2010-08-14 21:41:14 EDT
Description of problem:
Occasionally, mode switch on this system won't succeed on boot. The screen remains completely black, there is no disk activity and no key can bring anything back. The only fix is to power cycle the system.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel- (and others)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot the system.
Actual results:
Sometimes mode switch fails, leaving the system with black screen and hung.

Expected results:
Should work.

Additional info:

I searched Bugzilla for something similar and although there are some bugs that look marginally appropriate, this may in fact be something different. So, I'm opening a new one.

Please try from updates-testing.
Comment 2 Bojan Smojver 2010-08-29 21:45:07 EDT
OK, shall do. Although, I've seen this even with vanilla 2.6.35.
Comment 3 Bojan Smojver 2010-09-14 00:50:06 EDT
Haven't seen this particular thing for a while now, but because it is intermittent, I won't rule it out completely yet. I'm on right now.

Comment 5 Bojan Smojver 2011-10-03 20:24:54 EDT
