FC7 Test 1 6.90 did not have any problems on this
same computer.

Comment 2 Matthew Miller 2007-04-10 16:27:52 UTC
Fedora 7 test bugs should be filed against "devel", not against test1/2/3. This
isn't obvious, I know. Moving this report so it isn't lost.

This is a bulk message -- I apologize if this was actually meant to be targeted
against a different release. If so, please fix or let me know. Thanks.

Comment 3 Dave Jones 2007-04-23 18:05:09 UTC
It would be good to know if the current build has this fixed. You can grab an
iso from..

or you can try the vmlinux/initrd from
if you are comfortable adding an entry for it to /boot/grub/menu.lst

Comment 4 Larry K. Brown 2007-04-26 03:23:01 UTC
with the boot.iso from above the computer still hangs but here is the debug info:

Comment 5 Larry K. Brown 2007-04-26 04:07:30 UTC
booting with the option acpi=off avoids the hang.

Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 23:37:01 UTC
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here: to ensure this
doesn't happen again.

Comment 7 Bug Zapper 2008-05-07 01:16:17 UTC

first requested. As a result we are closing it.
