Description of problem:
I just upgraded from my working 2.4.18-3 to 2.4.18-4
When I boot, everything looks just fine util "Enabling swap space [OK]", then
noting happens... ctrl+alt+delete to reboot doesnt even work.
In 2.4.18-3, the next line after swap is the one from hdparm. I enabled the
default optimizations available in /etc/sysconfig/harddisks
How can I provide more info?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade RH7.3 from 2.4.18-3 to 2.4.18-4 and reboot.
Dell Latitude C810
And if you revert to 2.4.18-3 this goes away?
(boot in emergency mode if necessary)
If so, remove the hdparm settings. They are provided as a convenience to
users, but it is not guaranteed that arbitrary settings will work.
After trying to boot this kernel for a few days, it now works. Dont know why, but I'm happy anyway
