Comment 2 Andrew Cathrow 2007-02-22 13:27:04 UTC
Just reproduced the same on a MacBook with core-2-duo.
Tried this on 2936 and 2911 with same result. Last kernel that I have that
appears to work is 2.6.20-1-2898.2.3.fc7

Unable to get a trace other than taking a photo, and David's trace is identical
to mine.

This happens immediately after

Setting up standard PCI resources

I've tried pci=nommconf incase that's the issue and various combinations of pci=
but I'm still unable to boot

Comment 3 Ruben Kerkhof 2007-02-24 19:59:55 UTC
I can confirm this on my Macbook Pro first generation as well.

Comment 4 David Zeuthen 2007-03-03 20:03:32 UTC
Still happening with .2962...

Comment 5 Rafael Ávila de Espíndola 2007-03-05 03:18:47 UTC
compiling without CONFIG_DEBUG_MUTEXES "solves" the problem. The problem is also
present on linus git tree.

Comment 6 Rafael Ávila de Espíndola 2007-03-07 06:21:59 UTC
I tried to us netconsole to get a better trace, but the kernel crashes before
the netconsole is up :-(
I want to help, but I think that I will need some information on how to debug this.

Fixed on 2985

Comment 9 Will Woods 2007-03-15 19:18:50 UTC
davidz, can you confirm that this problem is fixed in kernel .2985 and later?

Comment 10 David Zeuthen 2007-03-15 19:41:50 UTC
Yeah, latest Rawhide boots. Thanks. Closing this bug.
