This issue still remains with 2.6.31-rc2, I pulled from the Linus branch yesterday, recompiled and rebooted from 2.6.31-rc2 - again my X starts (ion-3), the date can not be set and then the machine hangs. Exact same symptoms as in rc1.

Just installed 2.6.31-rc3 after pulling from Linus-Git. My machine still hangs after boot. This time ion3 won't start and I directly get a blue screen (I guess some kind of X-Server hang).

Just installed 2.6.31-rc4 after pulling from Linus-Git. Still having the same problem. Right after boot-up and starting X.org the Machine hangs itself. The only way I can reboot is by pulling the power cord or by doing a hard reboot pushing the Power-Button for over 4 seconds.

Once the Kernel hung itself these to lights keep blinking on my keyboard:


My X.org runs smooth on 2.6.30

As far as I can tell no more problems. Thanks for the help and the reminders!

This may or may not have to do with the mentioned bug. My system still shows me these errors. That is why I am still posting this here.

The Kernel I am running now is: 2.6.31-rc5-00034-ga33a052
