Description dubos 2000-01-04 16:50:48 UTC
I installed RedHat 6.0 on my (old) i486. Hardware is : - 486 DX2 66 - 12 Mb RAM - 210 Mb IDE hard drive (master) - ATAPI CD-ROM (slave) - some old motherboard ( ISA slots only ) - add-in controller card (serial, parallel and IDE) - add-in Trident SVGA video card Disk partitions are : / 194 Mb swap 16 Mb Installation works just fine (I kicked out all extra components due to limited disk space). I put LILO in the MBR. After reboot, LILO correctly loads the kernel and starts the usual boot sequence. After a few log lines, the system hangs. The last message was very much like: hda is XXX210 ATA disk drive The same problem appears if I boot from the boot disk created during the install. The strange thing is that the problem does not affect the installation boot disk, although the boot sequence looks identical. I unsuccessfully tried all combinations of BIOS IDE parameters (block mode, lba mode and 32bit mod enable/disable), and now I give up ! PS : I do not think LILO is guilty but I could'nt find the proper component

Does this work any better with a more current release of Red Hat Linux?

Thank you for considering this old bug report. Unfortunately, this hardware died months ago (motherboard failure). This might just have been the first signs of the imminent death of the motherboard. I think this bug repord should just be closed since I don't have any valuable information to add nor can perform any test. Thanks anyway...
