Kernel Bug Tracker – Bug 2334
Reboot freezed the box in the final stage
Last modified: 2008-03-03 19:13:58 UTC
Twinhead P88TE(750C). Celeron 366MHz, Intel 440BX, HD 20G
2.6.5-rc1-bk3 kernel, KDE-3.1.4, gcc 3.2.2
If reboot choosed, say 'shutdown -r now' as root, everything looks fine
during rebooting process except system hangs when the final prompt "Restart...."
appears on screen. Have to power off the box manully before the system can boot
Steps to reproduce:
'shutdown -r now' as root
This is the same on my box:
kernel 2.6.9-1.6 on AMD athlon XP 3000+, V600DAP motherboard. Hangs
on "Restarting system...." message
Confirmed on my box as well:
CPU: Centaur VIA Samuel 2 stepping 03
SiS 630 chipset
sis900.c: v1.08.07 11/02/2003 (Ethernet Chip)
SIS5513: IDE controller
SIS5513: chipset revision 208
SIS5513: SiS630 ATA 66 controller
Linux version 2.6.11-gentoo-r4
Bug still present on:
i686 VIA Samuel 2 CentaurHauls
Downstream bug report: http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=57766
VIA CentaurHauls Samuel 2 cpu has same problem. Is this possibly because the
march is reported as i686, but the processor lacks complete i686 instruction set?
Using an i586 kernel works on this machine.
Any updates on this problem?
If this still a problem, please reopen.
Closing it since no recent activity, hopefully it's been fixed.
