This entry is being used for tracking a regression from 2.6.24.  Please don't
close it until the problem is fixed in the mainline.
Comment 1 Bartlomiej Zolnierkiewicz 2008-02-13 14:38:29 UTC
What makes you think that it is actually an IDE problem?  The initial problem (which Andi fixed) was with *ide_generic* oopsing and could be just work-arounded by disabling ide_generic (like reported by Pavel).

Asking Kamalesh to provide dmesg output instead would be far more useful than opening this bugzilla entry...
Comment 2 Rafael J. Wysocki 2008-02-13 15:02:26 UTC
As stated above, the Bugzilla entry is for tracking the regression.  If you think it should be reassigned, please let me know and I'll do that.
Comment 3 Bartlomiej Zolnierkiewicz 2008-02-13 15:58:49 UTC
Yes, it should be reassigned to "under investigation" department.
Comment 4 Bartlomiej Zolnierkiewicz 2008-02-13 16:09:48 UTC
Also the bug summary is totally wrong now since IDE OOPS has been already fixed,
the problem now is:

Creating root device.
Mounting root filesystem.
mount: could not  find filesystem
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

but hopefully we will know more soon.

Comment 6 Kamalesh Babulal 2008-03-31 03:12:36 UTC
I was tested the 2.6.25-rc7 kernel and this kernel bootups without the panic.
Comment 7 Rafael J. Wysocki 2008-03-31 04:40:44 UTC
OK, let's assume the problem has been fixed,then.
