Re: FC5 update to kernel 2187 hangs at bootime



Hey John,

I thought i read somewhere that this latest kernel could be missing some sata_* modules thus not been able to boot, I had googled for hours and cant remember if this is correct...if I find a fix i'll post to this list.

Hi all,

I have had some troubles with FC5 on an intel board using the radeon xpress 200 chipset, after searching forums i was informed that a bug was introduced just before the official release regarding the kernel not loading non-GPL modules which the nvidia.ko is a part of ... so I did then install in text mode .... booted the OS changed xorg.conf to run the "vesa" driver and all was sweet!!

My real problem is that I decided to update the kernel from 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5 to 2.6.17.1.2187 ... i am not able to boot into this kernel it hangs when it attempting to start the services... i am assuming that another module is not been loaded and thus hanging. My system specs are;

  Intel Pentium D Dual Core 805 2.667Ghz 533FSB 2x1Mb cache LGA775 CPU,
  512Mb DDR2 533Mhz memory,
  Intel D102GGC2L motherboard,
  Intel High Definition Audio,
  High Performance 80Gb SATA II 7200 8Mb cache HDD with NCQ,
  ATI Radeon Express 200 graphics,

I'd appreciate any hints as how to resolve this issue.

my athlon 2200 box will not boot this kernel either.  but it sure hangs
up earlier in the process (see my earlier posts looking for help a week
or so ago).

i was attempting to move from kernel 2174 to 2187. my 2187 was/is a
pristine rpm'd kernel. no 3rd party drivers in it at all.
this doesn't seem to be a good list to get much help with kernel
problems.

john
