Description of problem:
My Dell Inspiron will not boot. It hangs at starting PCMCIA services, and
halts. I must power off with a hard reset using the power button. If I choose
interactive mode, and choose not to load PCMCIA, then the machine will boot. If
I pass the kernel the boot paramater acpi=off, then the machine will also boot,
however, APM will log numerous errors, which I have included since they may give
a better idea of what is going wrong.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Phoebe on Dell Inspiron 2500
2. Boot the machine.
3. Machine will hang at starting PCMCIA
4. Machine fails to boot and requires a hard power off.
