Description of problem:


I start with a clean installation of RHL 8.0 using the 2.4.18-14 kernel. I run 
up2date. Originally the update kernel was 2.4.18-19. I waited and tried again 
when the update kernel became 2.4.18-25. Both caused the system to hang after 
reaching the login prompt. The numlock key stops working. The LED on my network 
card stops blinking. I have no choice but to power down.




I did an interactive startup. I would wait for about a minute after starting 
each service. None caused the system to hang.




I was going to try changing some BIOS settings, but I'm not sure which ones I 
should try changing.




I get the same result on two other computers. My original setup was on an Intel 
233 MMX on a i430VX. I also tried it on an Intel P4 1.7 GHz on a i850 and an 
Intel P4 2.0 GHz on a i850.




Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):






How reproducible:


Always




Steps to Reproduce:


Just booting the computer causes the problem.




Additional info:




I run a softRAID array. The onboard IDE controller is full so I have another 
Promise IDE controller installed. On the 233, I have a PCI video card (Diamond 
4MB Stealth), a PCI 10/100 network card (RTL8139) and an ISA network card 
(3C503). On the P4, I have an AGP video card (ATI Rag




e IIc ??), the Promise IDE controller and a PCI 10/100 network card (3C905B).
Comment 1 Leo Torio 2003-03-01 00:31:31 EST
Discovered, after doing a full graphical install, but not a full text install, 
that kernel-utils was loaded and the Update Intel IA32 Microcode gets activated 
at startup. After doing a test installation, the updated kernel is stable.
