Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 80715
Recursively Crashes on Sony VAIO Laptop when APM is on
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:49:23 EDT
Description of problem:
Current rawhide kernel kernel-2.4.20-0.pp.9.athlon keeps crashing
with endless oops messages on the terminal. When booted with kernel
commandline apm=off, it does boot fine.
The oops logs scroll too fast on the terminal, so nothing can be captured.
Machine is a Laptop - Sony VAIO PCG-FX705 with AMD mobile Athlon Processor
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade dependencies.
2. Install new kernel
3. Boot without apm=off.
Should have booted fine.
Boots fine with apm=off kernel commandline.
did older kernels work ?
if not, can you attach dmidecode output (dmidecode is in the kernel-utils rpm)
Old kernels used to work. The 2.4.18-14 kernel shipped with Psyche works fine
even with apm on.
OOPS is recursive and scrolls very fast. Also there are no traces of the OOPS
after I reboot with apm=off.
Do you still need dmidecode output?
Let me know if you need some more info.
Yes, dmidecode output would be good if this behavior continues with recent kernels.
Please reopen if this persists with current kernels.
