Description Larry Troan 2003-03-11 21:02:26 UTC
On a merlot with AS2.1 installed, 1 cpu, bios A03, hyperthreading disabled, SMP
kernel hangs during boot after "Serverworks IDE channel 1" line.

UP kernel -> no hang
UP kernel w/ apic -> no hang
SMP kernel w/ noapic -> no hang
Hyperthreading enabled -> no hang 

Need to check other systems such as Jaguar and Discovery.

I have no idea if we tested the SMP kernel on UP systems. It's certainly
possible that a bug snuck in, in this area. So why not just boot the UP kernel
as anaconda puts there as default with HT disabled
