Description of problem:
Fri,Oct 18 I installed the
as a redhat autoemail said that this
was a good thing.
I did it through the graphical
(the thing that is either a '!' or checkmark
on gnome desktop).
The 'install'/up2date seemed to go ok.
After reboot then I had three items on boot
menu 'linux','linux.bak',and 'dos'.
I chose 'linux' and it did not get through all
of the 'OK' items (it hung up,requiring power off/on).
I could still chose the 'linux.bak' to get into
previous bootup sucessfully.
The last line:
blk:queue c1a95218 i/o limit 4095mb (mask 0xffffffff)
The lines just above that one:
Loading AIC7xxx module
ahc_pci:0:17:0: host adapter..
scsi0: adaptec aic7xxx ...
<adaptec aic ...
In the 'working ok' linux.bak it gets past the
adaptec stuff successfully.
The adaptec card is 2902E that only does
external scsi devices,the device hooked up to it
is an external cdwriter which I have turned off
except when I actually want to write a cd.
Hard drive is ide.
The working 'linux.bak' is the one as was installed
by the original redhat 7.3 install cd's
(I did not use any special 'drivers')
which is kernel-2.4.18-3.
I'll attach the lilo.conf in case someone is
curious about it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Choosing the 'linux' entry on bootup screen
Actual Results: hangup
Expected Results: It would have eventually shown me a login screen.
