Description Leo Torio 2003-02-26 18:04:57 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0) Opera 7.02 Bork-edition [en] Description of problem: I start with a clean installation of RHL 8.0 using the 2.4.18-14 kernel. I run up2date. Originally the update kernel was 2.4.18-19. I waited and tried again when the update kernel became 2.4.18-25. Both caused the system to hang after reaching the login prompt. The numlock key stops working. The LED on my network card stops blinking. I have no choice but to power down. I did an interactive startup. I would wait for about a minute after starting each service. None caused the system to hang. I was going to try changing some BIOS settings, but I'm not sure which ones I should try changing. I get the same result on two other computers. My original setup was on an Intel 233 MMX on a i430VX. I also tried it on an Intel P4 1.7 GHz on a i850 and an Intel P4 2.0 GHz on a i850. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Just booting the computer causes the problem. Additional info: I run a softRAID array. The onboard IDE controller is full so I have another Promise IDE controller installed. On the 233, I have a PCI video card (Diamond 4MB Stealth), a PCI 10/100 network card (RTL8139) and an ISA network card (3C503). On the P4, I have an AGP video card (ATI Rag e IIc ??), the Promise IDE controller and a PCI 10/100 network card (3C905B).

Discovered, after doing a full graphical install, but not a full text install, that kernel-utils was loaded and the Update Intel IA32 Microcode gets activated at startup. After doing a test installation, the updated kernel is stable.
