Expected Results: Usual boot, with the IDE controller recognized.
Based on my reading of the kernel source code and the data sheet for this IDE
controller, I suspect that I simply need one more line in the table of IDE
controllers recognized by the kernel. I'm hoping for a boot time work-around
to get the system up and running. Otherwise, I'm seeking a plan of attack on
how to get Linux patched/running on a machine that does not boot.
if your bios is anywhere remotely sane then it should work regardless of not
knowing the PCI ID, just not with DMA. You can try to use "ide=nodma" on the
grub screen to see if that works... :(
Or a newer kernel from the rawhide directory of our ftp site; that one has the
I tried the ide=nodma option during the course of my e-mail discussions with
Red Hat support, and again just now, but the boot still stalls at the same
Thus I think I'd like to go the rawhide route. Not to seem terribly obtuse
about it, but when I look
in /pub/Linux/distributions/redhat/rawhide/i386/images, I find an empty
directory. Is this the correct directory and therefore should I conclude that
there are no prebuilt images available? (I'm fairly new to the Linux world,
and have yet to build a kernel, and am hoping to avoid doing so.) Or is there
a directory where I can find the prebuilt images?
You can get images from the beta "Null" thats' in the beta directory
I went the rawhide route, downloading from a mirror site:
I burned images to CD, and after doing a mediacheck on each CD, installed
The boot proceeds further than before, but at a certain point crashes, causing
the hardware to reboot and the screen to go blue before I can really get a
good look at the last console message before the crash. The best glance I
could get was something still to do with the IDE, but I would not swear to
Is there some way I can look at the previous boot's console log during boot
time, such that I can give you more information?
Also, is this the right forum for reporting bugs in a beta version of the
