dmesg from 3.0.1-3 - I don't get as far as interacting with 3.1
but exactly the same grub2 setup with
kernel-PAE-3.1.0-0.rc3.git0.0.fc16.i686 fails. It just hangs after grub have loaded initrd and handed over control.
I saw a similar problem on an iMac 64-bit when grub gfxpayload was set. Phcoder made a patch for disabling that in EFI mode. Mjg59 mentioned another approach and kernel changes.
The 3.1 kernels work ok on iMac 64-bit.
Suspect this is the rtc code changes.
I noticed that the same machine with 3.0.1-3 reports
Oops:efitime: can't read time!
i915 ... Invalid ROM contents
[drm:intel_parse_bios] *ERROR* VBT signature missing
kernel-PAE-3.1.0-0.rc4.git0.0.fc16.i686 fails too.
This is caused by ef68c8f87ed13f65df867dddf36c0e185b27b942
