Bug 3291

Summary: store_edid hangs boot
Product: Platform Specific/Hardware Reporter: Michael Douglass (mikedoug)
Component: i386Assignee: Zwane Mwaikambo (zwane)
Severity: normal    
Priority: P2    
Hardware: i386   
OS: Linux   
Kernel Version: 2.6.0- Tree: Mainline
Regression: ---

Description Michael Douglass 2004-08-27 17:56:36 UTC
 Fedora Core II as well as the vanilla kernal from kernel.org

Hardware Environment:
 P3 500
 Diamond Viper 770D Ultra NVIDIA

Software Environment:
 This occurs with kernel versions starting with 2.6.0 (did not check 2.5 to 
see where it started in there but that would be easy to check since I've found 
WHERE the problem is).

Problem Description:
 When I boot a 2.6.x kernel compiled with CONFIG_VIDEO_SELECT=y my system 
hangs after grub prints out the boot lines and their respective responses.

 I have debugged it down to the store_edid function.  If I #if 0 out that 
section, I get no hang.  The simplest fix for me is to set 
CONFIG_VIDEO_SELECT=n and recompile the kernel -- only it's quite annoying to 
have to do that every time a kernel is released.

Changing severity to normal, it's not stopping me from using my system any
longer -- and anyone else with the same problem can use my work around.
