Description of problem:When I try to load Linux on a new Compaq Presario 905US laptop I get, very early in the installation phase of loading Redhat's Linux 8.0, a "Spurious 8259a interrupt: IRQ 7" message, and the system hangs. I've tried to boot using Linux pci=off, which eliminates the message and the installation appears to work, but after the system tries to boot I get a kernel panic. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Kernel 2-4-18-14 How reproducible: Everytime Steps to Reproduce: 1. Try intall of Redhat 8.0 on Compaq Presario 905Us or 906US laptop (see additonal info) 2. 3. Actual results: Install hanges. (If pci=off is not set) If set no support for pci devices e.g. ethernet, sound devices Expected results: Expect to install RH 8.0 without problems Additional info:I've been trying and trying and trying to get RH8 installed on my new > Compaq Presario 906US laptop with the following: > > 256MB RAM > ATI Radeon Mobility 320M Graphics (which isn't supported by XFree86 yet) > Realtek RTL8139 Family PCI Fast Ethernet > SoundMAX (I'm not exactly sure of the specs) > Toshiba CD-RW/DVD > > I *finally* can install and boot RH8 by doing the following: > 1. Before I begin the install, I have to enter "linux pci=off" > Otherwise, I get the "spurious 8259A" error. > 2. After the install, I reboot.
