Fedora Core II as well as the vanilla kernal from kernel.org
Diamond Viper 770D Ultra NVIDIA
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).
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.
For more complete information, please see my bugzilla ticket on
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.
