Description of problem:
I am attempting to install and run RedHat 8.0 on an IBM Thinkpad iSeries
notebook (model 1171-9bu). The installation program hangs on the USB ohci
driver step. After searching the web, I was able to get around that problem by
specifying "boot: linux nousb" and booting directly from the cd-rom. The rest
of the installation seems to have completed normally. (A complete re-partition
& format of the hdd was done. The Server option was selected & some of package
selection was customized.)
After the install completed and the system tries to reboot, it hangs on
loading the usb ohci driver. I can not get RedHat to load/boot/run because of
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Try to load / boot / run any bootable image (boot disk image, cd-rom) on an
IBM Thinkpad iSeries notebook. Model 1171-9bu.
Actual Results: The system load / boot hangs and does not proceed. Must power-
off the notebook to recover.
Expected Results: The system should load / boot properly
This problem seems to be isolated to the specific notebook model noted above.
The 8.0 install cdrom image booted successfully on an IBM Thinkpad T23 (model
2647-CU5). Also, the latest BIOS update for the iSeries (1171-9bu) was
downloaded and applied.
