Serial setup hang with IBM a22m (Re: FC2 test1: install glitchesand comments)



Hello!

I know I had a similar problem of half-booting with the 2.6 kernel of MDK10b2, so this is probably something generalized. I had been told by people in MDK forums that this was possibly related to ACPI?

Mine breaks regardless of ACPI - seems IRQ routing is in general somewhat hosed on 2.6.2 in RH. acpi=off pci=usepirqmask might help

Ok, I've just tried installing MDK10-RC1. This has 2.6.2 instead of 2.6.2-rc3 of MDK10b2 and I've found the same problem as you have: I can only boot the install - the normal boot hang whatever I do (actually, I couldn't boot the install until I installed W2K!!).


The whole story here:

I'm mentionning it here because I'm guessing that once FC2 goes from 2.6.1 to 2.6.2, I won't be able to boot FC2...

Maybe something happenned between 2.6.2-rc3 and 2.6.2 that worsened the hang-on-reboot??

Thanks,

Ricky
