From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020827 Description of problem: When trying to install 8.0 from CD on a Sceptre SoundEx 8550 laptop the install processes halts when trying to initialize pcmcia devices. This occurs whether or not there is a pcmcia card inserted. This machine already has 7.3 on it and the installer for it worked properly. This seems very similar to a bugzilla bug I found for the 7.1 installer Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. start the installation. 2. 3. Actual Results: Install freezes (and presumably kernel panic) on "Initializing PC Card Devices" Expected Results: The install should have proceeded Additional info: the Alt-F3 screen displays: ... * found firewire controller ohci1394 * modules to insert ieee1394 ochi1394 * inserted /tmp/ieee1394.o * inserted /tmp/ohci1394.o * load module set done * probing for firewire scsi devices * no firewire scsi devices found * probing for floppy devices * first non-detached floppy is fd0 * system floppy device is fd0 * in startPcmcia() * found cardbus pci adapter * need to load yenta_socket * modules to insert pcmcia_core * inserted /tmp/pcmcia_core.o * load module set done * modules to insert yenta_socket ds [End of output] on the Alt-F4 screen: ... <6>ohci1394_0: OHCI-1394 1.1 (PCI): IRQ= MMIO=[e8004000-e8004800] Max Packet= <7>ieee1304: Host added: Node[00:1034] GUID[00023f190e0024b1] [Linux OHCI-1394] <6>Linux Kernel Card Services 3.1.22 <6> options: [pci] [cardbus] <6>PCI: Assigned IRQ 10 for device 00:04.0 <6>PCI: Sharing IRQ 10 with 01:00.0 <6>PCI: Found IRQ 5 for device 00:04.1 <6>PCI: Sharing IRQ 5 with 00:07.5 <6>PCI: Sharing IRQ 5 with 00:0d.0 <6>IRQ routing conflict for 00:11.0, have irq 11, want irq 5 [End of output]

Any ideas arjan?
Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2002-11-19 18:51:04 UTC
Have you seen similar problems Arjan?
Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2002-11-19 19:09:16 UTC
<6>IRQ routing conflict for 00:11.0, have irq 11, want irq 5 that's a bios issue do you have PNP set to "yes" in the bios ?
Comment 4 Need Real Name 2002-11-19 19:24:39 UTC
The laptop in question does not have a setting for enable/disable PNP. It is interesting to note, though, that the 7.3 installer works properly with this machine.

I am suffering from this problem aswell. I have a compaq presario 2800 laptop ( mobile p4 , 256mb ram ). Immediately after loading /sbin/loader, when the installer starts, the computer completely locks upp, at the "Initializing PC Card Devies..." step. This machine had no problems with the redhat 7.3 installer ( it runs redhat 7.3 right now, happily ). And the install media passes the mediacheck ( done on another computer as the laptop freezes due to this bug, even for the media check ). The different install options ( noprobe, text etc ) have all been tried, but doesnt help in any way. Some people on the Redhat-install-list mailinglist seems to have had similar problems and some have managed to solve it by changing pnp/os and pc-card settings in bios. But as in the case described above, this laptop dont have any such options in the bios ( there is a VERY limited set of options ).

Oh, I didn't see this bug when I filed this bug just now: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=78791 I have the same issue with a brand new Toshiba Satellite 1115-S103. The BIOS on it doesn't let you change much of anything. I have not tried loading RH 7.3 on it, but Knoppix 3.1 booted on it AOK. I am loading Mandrake 9.0 on it right now.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem persists. The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
