Description Johnathan 2012-10-18 00:58:34 EDT
Description of problem:
Kernel panic on boot

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

How reproducible:
Boot computer with my external raid enclosure.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Turn on enclosure
2. Boot computer
3. Crash
Actual results:
Computer should boot

Expected results:
Enjoy playing on the computer

Additional info:

After the kernel went to the 3.6 series I can't boot with my external raid enclosure on. If I have it disconnected I can boot fine. It has always worked fine before. I have tried turning it on after a boot, and computer just locks up.

The enclosure is a Rosewill RSV-S5. I use a software raid, but still won't work with just a single drive in it.

I have tried the current stable kernel and the one in updates-testing.

Unless we see the backtrace, there's nothing we can even start looking at here.  Please attach a picture of it or a hand transcription or something.

I have a similar problem:

Platform:	x86

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

Description of problem:
Kernel panic on boot

Steps to reproduce:
1. Turn on
2. Boot begins
3. Crash

Additional info: 
After update from kernel-PAE-3.5.4-2.fc17.i686 to kernel-PAE-3.6.2-4.fc17.i686 my computer frequently crushes on boot (2-3 successful boots on 10 attempts).

Comment 7 Eugene Saenko 2012-11-04 05:35:33 EST
kernel-PAE-3.6.3-1.fc17.i686 -- the same problem
kernel-PAE-3.5.4-2.fc17.i686 works OK
Comment 8 Eugene Saenko 2012-11-12 13:52:12 EST
kernel-PAE-3.6.6-1.fc17.i686 -- the same problem
Comment 9 Eugene Saenko 2012-11-24 11:19:27 EST
kernel-PAE-3.6.7-4.fc17.i686 -- the same problem/

But with kernel-PAE-3.6.7-4.fc17.i686 
and with kernel-PAE-3.6.6-1.fc17.i686 kernel parameter pci=noacpi helps.
Comment 10 Josh Boyer 2013-03-12 15:14:16 EDT
Are you still seeing this with 3.7.9 or 3.8.2 in updates-testing?
Comment 11 Eugene Saenko 2013-03-12 16:17:17 EDT
3.7.9-104.fc17.i686.PAE works OK
Comment 12 Josh Boyer 2013-03-12 16:49:06 EDT
